  Changed paths:
    M datapath/datapath.c
    M datapath/vport.h

  Log Message:
  datapath: Fix net exit.

Open vSwitch allows moving internal vport to different namespace
while still connected to the bridge. But when namespace deleted
OVS does not detach these vports, that results in dangling
pointer to netdevice which causes kernel panic as follows.
This issue is fixed by detaching all ovs ports from the deleted
namespace at net-exit.

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000028
