[Openstack-operators] Implement OS using existing network setup

If you want to replicate your existing network configuration with 'Neutron'
(sorry, I'm not done yet to this name), you have to use the Neutron API to
do this. Don't try to do it directly using ovs commands, 'Neutron' won't
recognize it.

Keep in mind that the networks created with Neutron API work great inside
the Nova sandbox. If you want to connect to other existing networks, may be
you have add them as external networks. My experience trying to add an
existing subnetwork and the corresponding VLAN as a new (not-external)
network was not as smooth as expected. Still you can give a try.
