    M ofproto/ofproto-unixctl.man

  Log Message:
  ofproto-dpif-trace: Make -generate send packets to controller again.

Prior to the OVS 2.9 development cycle, any flow that sent a packet to a
controller required that the flow be slow-pathed.  In some cases this led
to poor performance, so OVS 2.9 made controller actions fast-pathable.  As
a side effect of the change, "ovs-appctl ofproto/trace -generate" no longer
sent packets to the controller.  This usually didn't matter but it broke
the Faucet tutorial, which relied on this behavior.  This commit
reintroduces the original behavior and thus should fix the tutorial.
