ofproto-dpif: Fix up user specifying wrong bridge on "ofproto/trace".
If there is more than one bridge, then it's easy to specify the wrong one
on an ofproto/trace command.  Previously, this would produce surprising
results.  With this commit, "ofproto/trace" should silently fix up the

It would be nice to not require the user to specify a bridge at all, but
it's theoretically possible to have more than one backer, in which case we
need some way to distinguish, and a bridge name is as good an identifier
as we have.  We could ask the user to specify the datapath_type, I guess,
but that's a less familiar name to most users and it would be a somewhat
gratuitous change in synatx for ofproto/trace.

Bug #15419.
