Commit Message

Ben Pfaff May 7, 2021, 4:06 a.m. UTC
Dumitru reported in #openvswitch that ovn-northd-ddlog can discard the
setting of NB_Global.options:use_logical_dp_groups at startup.  I think
that this must be because it seems possible that at startup some of the
relations in the Out_NB_Global rule aren't populated yet, and yet
there is still a row in nb::NB_Global, so that neither rule for
Out_NB_Global matches and therefore ovn-northd-ddlog deletes the row.

This commit changes the structure of how ovn-northd-ddlog generates
Out_NB_Global to ensure that, if there's an input row, it always
generates exactly one output row.  This should be more robust than the
previous version regardless of whether it fixes the exact problem
that Dumitru observed (which I did not try to reproduce).
