Pass the VM Instance ID to Neutron when a VM is started

Registered by Kyle Mestery on 2013-07-02

This is a small change in Nova's Neutron API to pass the Instance ID when a VM instance is launched to Neutron, using the port binding extensions. This allows for Neutron plugins to acquire additional meta information for the VM for display purposes. The change is made in the allocate_for_instance() API in nova/network/quantumv2/api.py.
