NetworkManager, Open vSwitch, and NMState

Oh my.
-George Takei

Mostly writing this down so Google knows about it the next time I search. On a fresh VM I tried to use NMState to apply a configuration that included OVS bridges and interfaces. This failed with the error libnmstate.error.NmstateDependencyError: Open vSwitch support not properly installed or started. I had installed and started OVS, so I was very confused. I vaguely recalled that there was an integration package for NetworkManager, but a dnf search openvswitch turned up nothing.
