Description Gris Ge 2020-01-07 07:49:13 UTC
Description of problem:

When creating OVS port connection, as it does not have kernel interface,
hence it should be limited by the 15 interface name length in `connection.interface-name`.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. nmcli conn add type ovs-bridge conn.interface bridge0
2. nmcli conn add type ovs-port conn.interface ovs-port-ovs123456789012 master bridge0

Actual results:

Error: failed to modify connection.interface: interface name is longer than 15 characters.

Expected results:
No failure.
