Hi ML2 team.

I created this patch [1] based on the discussion in the mail list. Since 
it touch the code in ml2(especially in the segment part), could you review 
it and give some advice on it?

I think this is what I expect.

Where would you bind the port?  DHCP requires L2 connectivity to the
segment which it serves.  But, you deleted the segment.  So, it makes
sense that it wouldn't work.

Brandon is working on DHCP scheduling which should take care of this.
DHCP should be scheduled to all of the segments with DHCP enabled
subnets.  It should have a port for each of these segments.  So, if a
segment (and its ports) are deleted, I think the right thing to do is
to make sure that DHCP scheduling removes DHCP from that segment.  I
would expect this to happen automatically when the subnet is deleted.
We should check with Brandon to make sure this works (or will work
when his work merges).
