Bug Description

v2.5.2 - 21 Feb 2017
   - ovs-ctl:
     * Added the ability to selectively start the forwarding and database
       functions (ovs-vswitchd and ovsdb-server, respectively).
   - Fedora packaging:
     * A package upgrade does not automatically restart OVS service.
   - Bug fixes

v2.5.1 - 27 Sep 2016
   - DPDK:
     * New appctl command 'dpif-netdev/pmd-rxq-show' to check the port/rxq
     * Type of log messages from PMD threads changed from INFO to DBG.
   - ovs-pki: Changed message digest algorithm from SHA-1 to SHA-512 because
     SHA-1 is no longer secure and some operating systems have started to
     disable it in OpenSSL.
   - Bug fixes

Test plan:

For all openvswitch updates, we perform regression testing by juju deploying two openstack clouds, one against -proposed and one against -updates, and we then run tempest integration smoke tests[1] to verify those deployed clouds, and evaluate any differences in results.
