The patch was originally implemented by Oleg Bondarev :)

The idea is that the plugin-driver is server-side logic which defines how
neutron-server interacts with the device implementing LB. For example,
haproxy plugin driver does it by communicating with lbaas-agent via rpc.
LBaas-agent has specific driver (device driver) that manages haproxy
processes on the host.
There could be other device drivers.
Using common agent is not required for a plugin-driver.

Usually it's vendor's responsibility to maintain their drivers.
