Right - and I think that really this shows the reference implementation
should probably consult the ML2 configuration for vxlan groups instead
of having it configured in each agent. I mean, it is an ML2 driver now.
I believe the agent configuration for vxlan group is a carry over from
when Linux Bridge was a separate plugin, before it became an ML2
mechanism driver.

So let's make LB more like the ML2 mechanism driver it's supposed to be.
