OVS 2.11.1 RPM builds and install fine on Oracle Linux 7.6, but on Oracle Linux 7.8 and 7.9 the RPM build fails with the following errors:

In file included from lib/netlink-conntrack.c:27:0:
/usr/include/linux/netfilter/nf_conntrack_sctp.h:25:2: error: unknown type name 'u8'

  u8 flags;

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.s2PkRp (%build)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.s2PkRp (%build)

I've looked at these URLs below, but do not know how to make use of them to get the RPM build working on Oracle Linux 7.8 and 7.9 (I have not tested Oracle Linux 7.7 yet).


Is there a way I can get OVS 2.11.1 RPM to build successfully on Oracle LInux 7.8 and 7.9 and what is causing the problem?
