Open source agents forwarding plane population

Registered by Francois Eleouet on 2013-05-27

Open source plugins overlay implementations could be improved to increase their scalability. Linux bridge VXLAN implementation, as well as OVS tunnels forwarding tables could be populated in order to limit dataplane-based learning (and broadcasts). A common mechanism driver could be implemented in ML2 to propagate the forwarding information among agents using a common RPC API.
