ofproto-dpif: Rate limit calls to facet_learn().
In the TCP_CRR benchmark, ovs-vswitchd spends so much time in
update_stats() that it has a significant impact on flow setup
performance.  Further work is needed in this area, but for now,
simply rate limiting facet_learn() has a roughly 10% improvement
with complex flow tables.

ofproto-dpif: Rate limit facet_check_consistency()
With complex flow tables, facet_check_consistency() can be
expensive enough to show up in flow setup performance benchmarks.
In my testing this patch gives us a roughly 10% improvement in
TCP_CRR and ovs-benchmark.
