  Log Message:
  gre: Rename fallback devices to avoid udev's interference

On certain kernel versions, when openvswitch kernel module creates
a gre0 interface, the kernel’s gre module will jump out and compete
to control the gre0 interface. This will cause the failure of
openvswitch kernel module loading.

This fix renames fallback devices by adding a prefix "ovs-".
