Allow VIF type to be set per host_id in BigSwitch/FloodLight plugin

Registered by Kevin Benton on 2013-06-20

There are some networks that are a hybrid mix of VIF types (e.g. OVS and IVS). When using the generic VIF driver on nova compute nodes, there is no way to specify different VIF types for different compute nodes. This allows users to configure a list of VIF overrides for nova host ID's.

This will utilize the proposed host_id parameter being sent from Nova (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/vm-host-quantum).

yong sheng gong: It seems there are lots depending on the host-id patch. But it is not easy to get that patch in.

I am setting this to H2 since this patch has already been posted.
