The Open vSwitch run, log, and DB directories are installed as part of the
normal `make install` process.  However, this means they are created with
user and group ownership that may conflict with the desired user.  For
example, running `make install` as root will install those files as
root:root, whereas the runtime user desired may be openvswitch:openvswitch.

Since these directories are automatically created as part of the ovs-ctl
command, and with the correct user:group permissions, it makes sense to
delay creation until these directories are actually required.
