This is honestly the approach that we've taken with Neutron. We are
currently only testing the ML2 plugin with the Open vSwitch agent. We
don't (to my knowledge) even test the Linuxbridge agent or L2
population driver in ML2 in the gate, nor the other Open Source
drivers and plugins. We rely on 3rd party CI for all of those. It's
not unreasonable for a similar model to be followed for other pieces
of testing.
