Kernel VXLAN support for quantum openvswitch plugin

Registered by Zang MingJie on 2013-04-28

Linux starting from kernel 3.7 linux offers native vxlan support.

Like gre tunnel, vxlan provide l2 isolation, but more convenient to config and setup.

After ml2 has been merged, and ovs plugin has been deprecated, instead implement kernel vxlan for ovs plugin, this blueprint retarget to implement kernel vxlan support for ml2 plugin, and use ovs agent to set up the vxlan device

This task contains two parts:

1. create kernel vxlan TypeDriver in ml2
2. implement kernel vxlan in ovs agent
