meta-flow: Don't allow negative port numbers.
If a negative number is supplied, the parsing code used to convert it
into a signed one.  We ran into an incident where a third-party script
was attempting to get the OpenFlow port number for an interface, but got
-1 from the database, since the number had not yet been assigned.  This
was converted to 65535, which maps to OFPP_NONE and all flows with
ingress port OFPP_NONE were modified.  This commit disallows negative
port numbers to help prevent broken integration scripts from disturbing
the flow table.

Issue #14036
