  ovs-save: Restore tunnel TLV map before flows.

Scripts that integrate OVS with a distribution often save and
restore flows across disruptive events, such as an upgrade. The
ovs-save utility generates a script to assist with this.

When flows include tunnel metadata, we also need to restore the
TLV mappings before the flows are re-added. Otherwise, the instance
of OVS receiving the new flows won't know the meaning of these
fields and will ignore them.
