Add support for InfiniBand SR-IOV for libvirt virtualization

Registered by Irena Berezovsky on 2014-10-19

SR-IOV networking support was added for nova during Juno Release. Currently it is enabled only for Ethernet Fabric. This blueprint intention is to add support for InfiniBand SR-IOV networking to nova via dedicated vif_type support in generic libvirt vif driver. Neutron support for InfiniBand networking is already enabled in Mellanox ML2 Mechanism Driver.
