Tag 4095 is for "dead" OVS ports, it's an unused VLAN tag in the agent.
The 'qvo' here shows it's part of the VETH pair that os-vif created when
it plugged in the VM (the other half is 'qvb'), and they're created so
that iptables rules can be applied by neutron. It's part of the "old"
way to do security groups with the OVSHybridIptablesFirewallDriver, and
can eventually go away once the OVSFirewallDriver can be used everywhere
(requires newer OVS and agent).
I wonder if you can run the ovs_cleanup utility to clean some of these up?
