  Log Message:
  ovn-ctl: Add new commands 'run_nb_server' and 'run_sb_server'

Presently if the user wants to start OVN db servers as separate containers,
'ovn-ctl' script is not useful as '--detach' option is passed when
ovsdb-servers are started.  If the container command is 'ovn-ctl
start_nb_ovsdb', the  container exits as soon as ovn-ctl exits.

This patch adds two new commands - 'run_nb_server' and 'run_sb_server'. This
will be really useful for the above mentioned requirement.

Without these commands, the user may have to first generate the db by running
'ovsdb-tool' and then start the container with the command 'ovsdb-server
ovnnb_db.db ....' and this is very inconvenient.

This patch also updates the documentation in ovn-ctl.8.xml.
