Make OVS controller inactivity_probe configurable

This parameter applies to the OVSDB Controller table when the
native openflow driver is used. There are reports that increasing
it can reduce errors on busy systems. This patch also sets the
default value to 10s which is more than the OVS default of 5s.
See the ovs-vswitchd.conf.db man page for full description.

A new option ``[ovs] of_inactivity_probe`` has been added to allow
changing the inactivity probe interval when using the OVS ML2 agent
with the native OpenFlow driver. Operators can increase this if they
are experiencing OpenFlow timeouts. The default value is 10 seconds.
