Hi stackers!

Sorry for the stupid question, but why does nova.network.neutronv2.get_client() [1] drop auth_token for admin? Is it really necessary to make another check for username/password when trying to get a list of ports or floating IPs?.. 

When keystone is configured with LDAP backed this leads to a bunch of LDAP requests which tend to be quite slow. Plus those LDAP requests could have been simply skipped when keystone is configured with token cache enabled.
