Registered by Yaguang Tang on 2012-07-05

it is usefull for user who uses openstack instances that can plug/unplug vif at any time.

1、create a vif which has ip and mac.
2、associate it to the spcified instance.

we need to add an api for nova to execute plug/unplug action .
and add the option to use this feather in novaclient
