Neutron FWaaS - Introduce Service Insertion

Registered by Sumit Naiksatam on 2013-10-30

The current FWaaS API does not have any provision to provide an insertion context. Hence the firewall is inserted using default semantics that insert the firewall in all the routers that a tenant owns.

The insertion operations are being separately addressed in the following blueprint:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/neutron/+spec/neutron-services-insertion-chaining-steering

We will leverage the insertion context defined in the above proposal to perform the firewall insertion. In the case of the reference implementation, this will be on a particular router.
