ovs perfermance optimization by removing redundant linux bridge when setting port-security false

Registered by yalei wang on 2014-12-15

Create this bp for tracing the discussion in patchset 14 in port-sec spec https://review.openstack.org/#/c/99873/
idea from Praveen Yalagandula and Ihar Hrachyshka.

When setting port-security false(to make all packages pass through), if we use ovs mechanism driver, we could consider removing redundant Linux bridge from the network path as a kind of performance optimization.
