Add flavors for load balancers in Octavia

Registered by Evgeny Fedoruk on 2016-10-27

OpenStack Neutron has a flavors API. This API doesn't have a scheduling for multiple flavor's providers and the meta data could not be retrieved outside the API.
Now, when neutron-lbaas is the OpenStack LBaaS API, neutron's flavors API is not used in neutron-lbaas.

Since Octavia will become a new OpenStack LBaaS API, a new flavors API should be developed inside Octavia.

Flavors are used in various services for specifying service capabilities and other parameters.
Having the ability to create loadbalancers with various capabilities (such as HA, throughput, back-end re-encryption etc..) gives users a way to better plan their LB services and get a benefit of LBaaS functions which are not a part of Octavia yet.
