There was some discussion if the ml2_type_vxlan.vxlan_group of the ml2
config file (Neutron Server) can be removed , as it is not being used
by in-tree drivers (ovs, lb, sriov).
OVS: does not support vxlan mcast
LB: uses it's own agent configuration today.
SRIOV: does not support vxlan at all
- Does anybody know any out-of-tree ml2 drivers that take use of this
- Why was it added at all? 
There is a patch out to make lb using this ml2 parameter and deprecate
the agent one.  Is this the right approach, or can we keep the agent
parameter and remove the server one (which is not used - or where we
don't know the users)?
