Support vhost-user port type on BM installation

Registered by Alexey Perevalov on 2018-06-20

OpenStack can create vhost-user port when configured to do it.
This type of port can significantly improve network performance in
NFV scenarios for DPDK applications. But kuryr-kubernetes still doesn't support it on
bare-metal installation. Similar use case was supported in nested
scenario, where containers work with VirtIO.
On bare-metal installation DPDK applications inside container work
with vhost-user Unix domain socket.

Ability to create vhost-user port should be added to kuryr-kubernetes.
It will be implemented as additional binding driver.
