commit 9c2274e813fe167b79b1ceb7f8da188e251cc6ef

    Don't create an OVSDB connection per API request
    Using the default ovsdbapp.backend.ovs_idl.Backend behavior which
    stores the ovsdb_connection on the Backend class itself ensures
    that when Octavia does the imports necessary for instantiating the
    driver, that the ovsdb_connection will remain on the class even
    though the instances are deleted. This will allow us to reuse the
    OVSDB connection between APIs despite octavia-api knowing nothing
    about it.
    In addition, __del__() can called from any thread by the garbage
    collector, and so it was possible that thread.join() would be
    called by the thread we were in, throwing an Exception and
    preventing cleanup.

  ovn-octvia-provider: RuntimeError: cannot join current thread

Status in neutron:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The Python garbage collector can run in any thread, and sometimes that
  thread will be the same thread where shutdown() tries to cal
  thread.join(). This prevents the rest of the cleanup.

  Exception ignored in: <function OvnProviderDriver.__del__ at 0x7f5639307af0>
