openvswitch: packet messages need their own probe attribtue
User space is currently sending a OVS_FLOW_ATTR_PROBE for both flow and packet messages. This leads to an out-of-bounds access in ovs_packet_cmd_execute() because OVS_FLOW_ATTR_PROBE > OVS_PACKET_ATTR_MAX. Introduce a new OVS_PACKET_ATTR_PROBE with the same numeric value as OVS_FLOW_ATTR_PROBE to grow the range of accepted packet attributes while maintaining to be binary compatible with existing OVS binaries. Fixes: 05da589 ("openvswitch: Add support for OVS_FLOW_ATTR_PROBE.")
