Debian: fail gracefully if modules can't be loaded on install
By registering an error-handler for the init script used in openvswitch-switch.postinst and detecting if module insertion fails, it is possible to avoid failure to install in the case where the openvswitch_mod module is not available. This is done without altering the behaviour that the start target of the openvswitch-switch init script will fail if module insertion fails. This patch also adds a friendly hint as as to why starting openvswitch-switch has failed if it is due to failure to insert the openvswtich_mod. This message is displayed as necessary both on package install and other calls to the start target of the init script. [Ben Pfaff fixed up == to = in postinst]
