Support userspace vhost in ovs vif bindings

Registered by Przemyslaw Czesnowicz on 2014-05-27

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "libvirt: Support vhost user in libvirt vif driver" for updated plans.

Virtual switches that use Intel(R) DPDK offer userspace vhost mechanism to connect VM’s to the switch.
The existing ovs vif bindings in LibvirtGenericVIFDriver are not compatible with this mechanism.
We propose to add support for userspace vhost in libvirt ovs vif bindings.
This feature is needed to enable userspace vSwitches in NFV workloads.
