Bug Description

The Macvtap agent that was introduced in Mitaka [1] requires some devstack support. As only compute attachments are supported (at the moment), the devstack support will be restricted to
- Single Nodes without l3 & dhcp agent
- Multi Nodes running ovs or lb on the controller/network node

    Devstack support for macvtap agent

    Macvtap agent can now be configured via this devstack.
    Note that it is only supported in multinode environments
    as compute node. The controller node still needs to run
    linuxbridge or ovs.

    Documentation will be added in devstack via [1]



    OVS Controller
    Make sure that the controller
    - loads the macvtap ml2 driver
    - uses vlan or flat networking

    Macvtap Compute Node local.conf
    enable_plugin neutron git://
    enable_service n-cpu
    enable_service q-agt
    physical_interface_mappings = $PHYSICAL_NETWORK:eth1
