mgmt: Cleanup handling of extended messages
OpenFlow has a maximum messages size of 65536 bytes, but management
messages can be greater than that.  The management protocol's Extended
Data message is used to get around that limitation.  This commit cleans
up some problems with our implementation and adds some additional
sanity-checking to received messages.

Related to vNetManager Bug #1843.
