Please accept apologizes for my English. In fact we can't prevent provider
network allocation for vxlan. In current model  only agents knows what
features are supported or not. I'am not sure if just exiting an agent is a
good solution, as usually agent will be immediately restarted by system.
I believe that producing error message should be enough.
