[Bug 1672522] Re: The python-openvswitch package should build the json C extension

I've added the -dev BD's to the package with a recent upload; however
the python native extension self depends on the package being built
which I've not figured out yet; we probably need to expose some sort of
libopenvswitch0{-dev} type package but I'm not sure.

  The python-openvswitch package should build the json C extension

Status in openvswitch package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The C extension wrapping OVS's own json parser is 60x faster than the
  pure-python version currently being used. Profiling shows JSON parsing
  to be the biggest bottleneck using python-openvswitch IDL library.

  setuptools can build the extension as long as the python-dev packages
  are installed and openvswitch-dev is installed. It should be available
  in OVS 2.6+
