  Log Message:
  ovs-tcpdump: Fallback to read /proc/net/dev on Linux

Currently, ovs-tcpdump uses python3-netifaces in order to get the list of
the network interfaces, but python3-netifaces may not be installed nor
available on some distributions (for example on RHEL7).

This commit adds, only for Linux, an alternative way (that is only used
when netifaces is not available) to read the list of the network interfaces
by reading "/proc/net/dev".
