Anyone here with Openstack operations experience? We currently see traffic loss in an RHEL #Openstack installation with openvswitch in VRRP mode after a failback between the virtual routers (initial failover on a node reboot works fine). When the node comes back up and takes back the router VIPs, it doesn't seem to send gratuitous ARPs, and uplink switches keep stale MAC address entries pointing to the previous host's ports, so there's blackholing. Anyone seen something like this? Config error?

Another backport. There is an important performance fix that was missing in 2.6.2 and some smaller fixes.

initially adopted them: https://u.fsf.org/2po
