OVS daemons are organized as a large "main loop".  In each trip around
the loop, some amount of work gets done.  It is possible to just process
one message per loop, but it is more efficient to process a larger
number of messages per loop.  The number 50 is arbitrary; you could use
5 or 10 or 15 or 100.
