  Log Message:
  doc: Describe backporting process.

This patch documents the backporting process, and provides a walkthrough
for developers who would like to backport upstream Linux patches into
the Open vSwitch tree. Nothing in this documentation should be
surprising or new; it merely puts the existing process into words.
