The idea for the future is to enable a new job with the l2gw agent enabled.
In order to do that, I thought about creating a network namespace running
an OVS instance with the hwvtep schema so the l2gw agent can connect to it.
This is just a first rough idea and I haven't tested anything.

Do you have any other good approach for this???
