  Log Message:
  ovs-ctl: allow passing user:group to daemons

The Open vSwitch daemons allow passing --user user[:group] to allow
spawning under different user privileges.  ovs-ctl now accepts --ovs-user
in the same form to pass this argument on, as well as create databases and
data directories with the appropriate privileges.
