I am doing some research regarding this issue and found a proposal for Open vSwitch upstart script:

https://github.com/gdahlm/openvswitch/blob/ubuntu/debian/openvswitch.upstart

The discussion about this is located at http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/dev/2012-May/017010.html

So far, I've applied this upstart script on a test system running Open vSwitch 1.7.3 and it seems to work ok:

$ wget https://github.com/gdahlm/openvswitch/raw/ubuntu/debian/openvswitch.upstart
$ sudo mv openvswitch.upstart /etc/init/openvswitch.conf

Further research is needed to determine whether it's fully compatible with current Open vSwitch release.
