Registered by Itxaka Serrano on 2015-12-16

Summary
=======
Adding the ability to launch an instance with a pre configured port

Motivation
========
Nova supports using a port-id to attach a port to a instance on launch, we should support it on horizon as well

Description
=========
Add an extra step on the launch instance wizard to list all unattached ports and allow the operator to select one or more

UX
===
A new step on the launch instance wizard should be created to allow the selection of ports to attach

Testing
======
Test the new step and how it affects other steps.

Outside Dependencies
==================
No outside dependencies

Requirements Update Required
========================
No requirements

Doc Impact
=========
Should mention on the release notes that a port/ports can be attached to an instance on launch instead or together with a network

[TravT] I think this needs mitaka -rc1 FFE so that we have feature parity with django LI.
