bridge: Deprecate the null interface type.
		
It's not entirely clear what problem the null interface type is
trying to solve, nor how it could be of use to any controller.
This patch deprecates it, and schedules its removal for February
2013.  If there are concerns, please email dev at openvswitch.org.

nicira-ext: Deprecate the autopath action.
		
The autopath action is an obsolete attempt to replicate
functionality contained in the bundle action.  It is ugly and of
questionable usefulness.  This patch deprecates it and schedules
its removal for February 2013.  If there are concerns, please email
dev at openvswitch.org.

bond: Deprecate stable bonds.
		
The stable bond mode is an obsolete attempt to replicate the

questionable usefulness.  This patch deprecates them and schedules
their removal for February 2013.  If there are concerns, please
email dev at openvswitch.org.
