enable a neutron port to be associated with a SRIOV VF, and thus pci-passthrough capable

Registered by Baodong (Robert) Li on 2013-10-25

Addresse functionalities required in the neutron side to support SRIOV. Basically, a neutron port can be either pci-passthrough capable or not. There are existing port properties that can be used for this purpose:

binding:capabilities
binding:profile

    * Add the ability to specify the following in the port-create API:
        . PCI alias
        . direct pci-passthrough/macvtap
        . port profile
    * Add property to indicate the PCI device used for a neutron port

Hi Robert,
I suggest to split this blueprint into two separate blueprints.
One blueprint for neutron port extension with PCI device properties.
Second blueprint for vnic_type request support on ML2 plugin.
I think these two efforts make sense as separate commits.
I am going to open new blueprint for the later.
