Ironic Neutron ML2 Integration

Registered by Bertie Fulton on 2015-06-01

To allow Ironic to support more than flat networks we should leverage the Neutron ML2 plugin and provide a mechanism by which supportive ML2 drivers can support ToR switch port binding for baremetal deployments. The mechanism proposed involves passing per port LLDP information and link aggregation information to Neutron in the form of binding profiles. It also relies on the proposals in network-provider for the network flip to support true network isolation and proposes a way to defer port binding to aid this.
