In the OpenStack gate, use the local cached Neutron git tree, updated
by zuul-cloner. For third-party CI, it will depend on your test setup,
how you're running tests, are you using images etc etc - but if its
similar to the OpenStack gate, zuul-cloner should be the answer again.

The only place its tricky is when dealing with tox environments, where
you need to be able to inject something with the right local path - so
a new file which you can reference with -r in tox.ini. (And -c in
future, but that hasn't landed yet).
