python-neutronclient for cisco Dynamic Fabric Automation Support

Registered by Milton Xu on 2014-02-10

Add new set of APIs to the neutronclient for accessing cisco Dynamic Fabric Automation extension resources.

To support cisco DFA in horizon, and also CLI (for neutron) when a network is created a new option should be displayed.
The new option is called 'configuration profile' and it will be displayed along with other options when creating a network and user can select one of the available profiles from the list. The list of profiles are fetched from the newly added database. The database is getting populated by a driver which will be added as part of ML2 cisco DFA mechanism driver. In order to get the list of config profiles from the database, a new API will be added to neutronclient.

We would like to get the implementation reviewed and committed for the Juno release

----
The changes in the neutronclient is for supporting a new 'config-profile' extension for network resource.

Here are the changes:
1. Add new file for supporting the CLI:
python-neutronclient/neutronclient/neutron/v2_0/configprofiles.py

2. Add new option to CLI:
python-neutronclient/neutronclient/shell.py
