Bug Description

With ifupdown, we configured VXLAN:s via post-up scripts.

Netplan should have VXLAN configuration directives built-in!

Not having this also means you rip out all the related bridge config from netplan as well, since you can't define a bridge using vxlan interfaces when they don't yet exist.

Concur with VXLAN support. Netplan is bliss compared to wrangling systemd-networkd directly so it's a pity that Netplan only supports such a tiny subset of networkd's available capabilities.
