[Openstack-operators] Neutron and linuxbridge

I'm curious if anyone uses the linuxbridge driver in production?

I've just finished setting up a lab environment using ML2, linuxbridge, and
vxlan and everything works just as it did with OVS.

I see benefits of a *much* simpler network layout, a non-deprecated vif
driver, and none of the OVS issues that have been discussed on this list.

But maybe I'm missing something... what are the reasons of using OVS over
linuxbridge? All of the official installation guides use it and I've never
seen anyone mention linuxbridge on this list.
