Bug Description

The xenial-queens bundle is intermittently failing. As seen here:

It appears there is a race where the neutron-bgp-dragent is not getting restarted after receiving rabbitmq (amqp) connection data.
The zaza tests (appear to) fail because the agent is not talking to rabbitmq.

tox -e build
cd build/builds/neutron-dynamic-routing
Edit tests/tests.yaml
  Put xenial-queens-functional under the smoke_bundles heading
tox -e func-smoke

The problem is a race and intermittent so it may take a few attempts to catch it.

When the `neutron-bgp-dragent` service on the `neutron-dynamic-routing` unit gets ready before the `neutron-server` service on the `neutron-api` unit, it will start sending messages it will receive no reply on. These show up as MessageTimeout Tracebacks in the `neutron-bgp-dragent` log.

Some times the `neutron-bgp-dragent` does not get updates even after the `neutron-server` service is available and the MessageTimeout Tracebacks subsides.

Removing the speaker from the agent and adding it back resolves the issue.

I believe this error condition must be in Neutron itself. While we figure out exactly what is going on I propose we add a workaround to the test for the `neutron-dynamic-routing` charm.

Proposed workaround in functional test here:

    Do not use default handler for `amqp.connected` flag

    The charm provides its own handler for appearance of `amqp.connected`

    Add workaround for intermittent test failures to functional test.
