Subject: [PATCH 4.19 287/321] openvswitch: drop unneeded BUG_ON() in ovs_flow_cmd_build_info()

From: Paolo Abeni <pabeni@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit 8ffeb03fbba3b599690b361467bfd2373e8c450f ]

All the callers of ovs_flow_cmd_build_info() already deal with
error return code correctly, so we can handle the error condition
in a more gracefull way. Still dump a warning to preserve
debuggability.

v1 -> v2:
 - clarify the commit message
 - clean the skb and report the error (DaveM)

Fixes: ccb1352e76cf ("net: Add Open vSwitch kernel components.")
