  Documentation: Fix kernel support matrix

The documentation matrix for OVS branches and which kernels they support
is out of date.  Update it to show that since 2.10 the lowest kernel
that we test and support is Linux 3.16.

RHEL and CentOS kernels based upon the original 3.10 kernel are still
supported.

newer than 5.0.

  acinclude: Fix build with kernels with prandom* moved to prandom.h.

Recent commit c0842fbc1b18 ("random32: move the pseudo-random 32-bit
definitions to prandom.h") in upstream kernel moved the definition
of prandom_* functions from random.h to prandom.h.  This change was
also backported to stable kernels.

Fixing our configure script to look for these functions in a new
location and avoid build failures:

  datapath/linux/compat/include/linux/random.h:11:19:
    error: redefinition of 'prandom_u32_max'
