BZ here - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1438069
Wondering, though, if this is expected behavior, and I need to do
something specific to enable larger frames on an OVS bridge with kernel

In case people didn't notice in the somewhat long analysis of the issue in the bug, the workaround is just a simple oneliner:
diff --git a/kernel.spec b/kernel.spec
index cb3dec8..29c198a 100644
@@ -183,6 +183,9 @@ Summary: The Linux kernel
%define _enable_debug_packages 0
%define debuginfodir /usr/lib/debug
+# Needed because we override almost everything involving build-ids
+# and debuginfo generation. Currently we rely on the old alldebug setting.

Of course it would be nice if someone could cleanup the various places that the kernel.spec overrides rpm find-debuginfo.sh and debugedit and provides some requirements that would make this all easier for the kernel build. It looks like the current build does a lot redundant extra work that might be prevented if rpm provided better hooks to do automagically what the kernel spec build requires. One thing rpm wants to introduce in the future (already upstream) is parallel processing of debug files. Which the current kernel.spec seems to prevent because it serializes the processing itself already.
I would be happy to review any feedback on why the kernel.spec has the current hacks and suggestions for improvements to make this smoother.
I hit something like kparal's but didn't get a screenshot of the vm
console. I've had several additional freezes of the VM but there was
no call trace, just a hang, and since it's before root is mounted rw,
there's nothing in the journal. Interestingly, it never happens when I
connect with virsh console. If it's being watched, it doesn't happen.
And so far on baremetal it hasn't ever happened (I've been running the
4.11 kernels for a couple weeks).

I would add this one for Power64 to that list then too, while some
users are reporting it works for them I've not had such luck, and in
fact ramdom luck with different kernels/same kernels where sometime it
boots and sometimes not.
