  Log Message:
  dpdk: Deprecate vhost-user server ports.

Since vhost-user server mode ports are the preferred mechanism for
interconnecting Open vSwitch with VMs when using DPDK, and since there
are currently no known use cases for vhost-user server mode ports apart
from version incompatibilities with QEMU, announce that server mode ports
are considered deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
