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 last_dir;
/usr/include/linux/netfilter/nf_conntrack_sctp.h:26:2: error: unknown type
name 'u8'
  u8 flags;
make[2]: *** [lib/netlink-conntrack.lo] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [all] Error 2
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?
