(also blocking reviews for networking-bgpvpn)

Historically, the driver allowing the use of networking-bgpvpn with the
ODL SDN controller was in the networking-bgpvpn project ; this is why
we have this dependency (the driver using some ODL utility code found
in the networking-odl project).

We can work at removing this historical driver from networking-bgpvpn.
Since a v2 driver (hosted in networking-odl) has been existing for a
long time, we possibly can do that without waiting. Just need to think
about the best way to do it.

ODL team, what do you think ?

In the meantime, to unbreak the CI for networking-bgpvpn, I'm pushing
[1], which puts an upper bound (< 13) on the dependency on networking-
odl to avoid drawing version 13 of networking-odl which introduces the
requirement on ceilometer.
