You were on master, which is presumably a clone of the OVS master
branch, and then you typed "git checkout -b v2.6.1".  This does not
switch to v2.6.1 or to any other commit or branch or tag.  Rather, it
creates a new branch from the *current* commit, which is presumably some
commit along the OVS master branch.  So this bug report is probably not
for v2.6.1 or even for branch-2.6 (the OVS 2.6.x branch).

What commit did you actually compile?
