  Changed paths:
    M lib/dpif-netdev.c

  Log Message:
  dpif-netdev: Hold global port mutex while calling offload API.

We changed datapath port lookup to netdev-offload API usage, but
forgot that port mutex was there not only to protect datapath
port hash map.  It was there also as a workaround solution for
complete unsafety of netdev-offload-dpdk functions.

Turning it back to fix the behaviour and adding a comment to prevent
removing it in the future unless netdev-offload-dpdk fixed.

For the thread safety notice see the top of netdev-offload-dpdk.c.
