    Implement local ARP responder onto OVS agent

    With ML2 plugin and l2-pop mechanism driver, it's possible to locally
    answer to the ARP request of the VM and avoid ARP broadcasting emulation
    on overlay which is costly.

    When this functionality is enabled, the OVS flows logic evolves to [1].
    This functionality was introduce in 2.1 OVS branch [2].

    A README is added to describe l2-pop mechanism driver and the agents
    particularities.

Change abandoned by Ryan Moats (<email address hidden>) on branch: master
Review: https://review.openstack.org/105906
Reason: As this change appears to need to be made from within the plugin's help text, there is no reason to continue with this
change.
