Hyper-V SR-IOV support

Registered by Claudiu Belu on 2017-12-19

Windows / Hyper-V Server 2012 introduced support for networking SR-IOV, and it can be implemented into the nova Hyper-V driver.

In order to implement this feature, os-win will have to expose a few methods:

- get information about the available SR-IOV capable NICs on the host.
- assign a NIC VF to a VM.

The neutron-hyperv-agent service will have to bind the given neutron port with SR-IOV enabled if the port has been created with binding:vnic_type=direct. If this property has been set, the neutron port details received from Neutron will contain the PCI slot information in it's port profile. We can use this information in order to determine if SR-IOV has to be enabled or not.
