[openstack-dev] [Neutron] Does any plugin require hairpinning to be enabled?

We currently have a bug for IPv6 work, which is to disable hairpinning
on the bridge that Nova creates. By default, it is always turned on,
which prevents instances from configuring IPv6 SLAAC addresses



Daniel Berrange has suggested that it be a per-VIF attribute - and in
principle I agree - provided that the default is to not enable

I would appreciate anyone's thoughts in the matter.
