  Log Message:
  msi: add ovs-vswitchd trigger info

This patch changes the service ovs-vswitchd from "auto" execution to
"demand" start.

This patch also introduces a custom action for the ovs-vswitchd service
in which the following command will be executed before the service startup:

sc triggerinfo ovs-vswitchd \

The above command is a service trigger available since Windows 7.
More on the topic:

In out case we will wait until Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-VMMS has triggered
that the WMI provider: VmmsWmiEventProvider has started.

The change is needed because the network service inside VMMS starts slower than
ovs-vswitchd, which will cause a race condition because we check if the OVS
extension is enabled on a single switch.
