Bug Description

Please backport openvswitch 1.9.0-0ubuntu1 (main) from raring to precise, quantal.

Reason for the backport:
========================
Version 1.9.x is the new LTS release of openvswitch. It would be great if this were available in the Ubuntu LTS release.

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s raring -d precise openvswitch
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s raring -d quantal openvswitch

Reverse dependencies:
=====================
The following reverse-dependencies need to be tested against the new version of openvswitch. For reverse-build-dependencies (-Indep), please test that the package still builds against the new openvswitch. For reverse-dependencies, please test that the version of the package currently in the release still works with the new openvswitch installed. Reverse- Recommends, Suggests, and Enhances don't need to be tested, and are listed for completeness-sake.

Oh, I see that a comment about the problem resolved would be helpful.

Aside from running latest and greatest, this version (actually, 1.7.0 would probably be enough, but 1.9.0 is the first fixed version in an ubuntu release) fixes major performance issues.

On 1.4, we're seeing lost packets whenever host load goes high, causing production issues. This problem is gone in 1.9.0.

Cheers,
