A nova config flag should be added to optionally allow instances to have multiple vnics on same Neutron L2 network

Registered by Racha Ben Ali on 2014-02-03

If a nova config flag (named for instance "duplicate_networks" is set to "enable" (we could probably agree if the default will be set to enable or disable) then Nova should allow booting VMs with multiple vNICs on same Neutron network for instance with --nic net-id <netid1> --nic net-id <netid1>, … (i.e. ports to be created on the same network) and --nic port-id <portid1> --nic port-id <portid2>, … (i.e. ports already created on the same network)
