[Neutron][OVN] nova-compute timeout while waiting for VIF activation confirmed by Neutron

Hello Tony:

Do you have the Neutron server logs? Do you see the
"PortBindingChassisUpdateEvent"? When a port is bound, a Port_Bound (SB)
event is issued and captured in the Neutron server. That will trigger the
port binding process and the "vif-plugged" event. This OVN SB event should
call "set_port_status_up" and that should write "OVN reports status up for
port: %s" in the logs.

Of course, this Neutron method will be called only if the logical switch
port is UP.
