Modular L2 VXLAN Network Support

Registered by Robert Kukura on 2013-06-03

Support for VXLAN is being added to the openvswitch agent (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/quantum/+spec/ovs-vxlan-lisp-tunnel and https://blueprints.launchpad.net/quantum/+spec/openvswitch-kernel-vxlan) and linuxbridge agent (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/quantum/+spec/vxlan-linuxbridge). A VxlanTypeDriver for the ml2 plugin is needed to support these, ideally allowing the various agent implementations to coexist and interoperate for the same vxlan network. Tunnel endpoint management RPC support may also be needed (see https://blueprints.launchpad.net/quantum/+spec/ml2-gre).
