Adding functionality in tripleo to create networks with OVS-DPDK

Registered by Sanjay Upadhyay on 2016-05-07

In order to get as close to wire-line speed as possible for virtual machines, we want to install and utilize OVS with DPDK on specific compute nodes.

With Neutron supporting Open vSwitch + DPDk vhost-user interfaces directly in the OVS ML2 Driver and agent, tripleo should also support this feature.
