  Log Message:
  ipfix: Export user specified virtual observation ID

In virtual network, users want more info about the virtual point to observe the traffic.
It should be a string to provide clear info, not a simple interger ID.

Introduce "other-config: virtual_obs_id" in IPFIX, which is a string configured by user.
Introduce an enterprise IPFIX entity "virtualObsID"(898) to export the value. The entity is a
variable-length string.
