[Openstack-operators] Virtual Instance can't obtain IP address (OpenStack Havana)

One more trick:

Check /etc/neutron/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_neutron_plugin.ini for 
local_ip value.

Find local interface with that address (if none found - this is config 
bug). run tcpdump -ni THAT_INTERFACE proto gre to see if some traffic is 
ever leave compute node.

Same thing can be done on network node to see if any  GRE traffic is 
reach it.
