This change in neutron  renames the linuxbridge and openvswitch
plugin config files. I'm familiar with the %config(noreplace) directive
in rpm but I'm not sure if there is a special trick with rpm to rename a
config file while not losing the changes in the config file during the
Is this just something that has to be handled with trickery in the %post
macro where we merge the contents together if the old config file
exists? Would symbolic links help?
Changes like this seem like a potential giant pain in the ass for packagers.
