[openstack-dev] [neutron] Question on functional tests

I am working on a bug [1] on neutron vpnaas and submitted the patch here 

The test code to test the fix does the following
     - creates a namespace
     - creates a veth pair and add one interface into the namespace
     - configures the interface with an ip address and
     - adds a default gateway
     - and of course tests the code.

This test code only tests a specific function 

Reviewers of this patch are not clear if this should be part of 
functional tests or unit tests.
Can unit tests create linux namespaces, interfaces etc or it falls under 
functional tests?

Please let me know your thoughts on this.
