[RFE] support a port-behind-port API
Status in neutron:
This RFE requests a unified API for a port-behind-port behaviour. This
behaviour has a few use-cases:
* MACVLAN - Identify that a port is behind a port using Allowed
Address Pairs, and identifying the behaviour based on MAC.
* HA Proxy behind Amphora - Identify that a port is behind a port
using Allowed Address Pairs and identifying the behaviour based on IP.
* Trunk Port (VLAN aware VMs) - Identify that a port is behind a port
using the Trunk Port API and identifying the behaviour based on VLAN
This RFE proposes to extend the Trunk Port API to support the first
two use-cases. The rationale is that in an SDN environment, it makes
more sense to explicitly state the intent, rather than have the
implementation infer the intent by matching Allowed Address Pairs and
other existing ports.
This will allow implementations to handle these use cases in a
simpler, flexible, and more robust manner than done today.
