[openstack-dev] [Neutron] [Dragonflow] Support configuration of DB clusters

My intention is to pass db-host-list (maybe it is defined in the conf
file) to db backend drivers. I find that there's '**args' available
[1], but it seems not working due to [2].

I suggest to use a simpler method to allow user-defined configuration that is
removing db_ip and db_port parameters and directly passing cfg.CONF
object to db backend driver.

In db_api.py, it should be:
def initialize(self, config):
    self.config = config

In api_nb.py, it should be:
def initialize(self):
        self.driver.initialize(cfg.CONF) <-- from oslo_config

As a result, let db backend developers choose which parameter to use.
