[Openstack-operators] linuxbridge and vxlan set up

We're using vxlan as transport with nova-network. We have a technical need
to use VXlan, but weren't happy with the state of neutron for a production
deploy yet.

We basically setup a vxlan interface as the master interface for
VlanManager, and then used dot1q tagging for tenant isolation. It is a
pretty simple setup, and has been solid for us so far.

This probably won't help with your problem directly, other than to indicate
that you have another option, should neutron be problematic.
