[Bug 1839592] Re: Open vSwitch (Version 2.9.2) goes into deadlocked state

So as documented in https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs-issues/issues/175
, this really seems to be a bug in glibc and not in openswitch. After
installing libc6 and related pkgs at version 2.29-0ubuntu2 (from disco),
the issue is resolved for us. The single patch from
https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=23844 did not fix the
issue. So we would either need to make an effort to get the version from
disco into bionic-updates or someone would need to locate a set of
possible patches and backport them.

  This cause the commands blocks and does not generate any output.

  ovs-ofctl show sw0

  ovs-ofctl dump-flows sw0

  Is necesary restart ovs-vswitchd service, to recover it.
