    Neutron considers the network address a valid IPv6 address if the
    owner is a router or is not defined yet [1][2]. If not, the IPv6
    address is discharded.

  Create port with fixed ipv6 address for non-router ports is not
  allowed anymore

Status in neutron:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  As per merge in of it is not 
allowed to create or update ports with fixed ips if the device_owner is not 
empty or a router device owner.
  This blocks us from creating ports with our own custom device owner, but also 
blocks for example the following example with a nova port:

  openstack network create net1
  openstack subnet create --ip-version 6 --subnet-range cafe:babe::/64 
--network net1 subnet1
  openstack port create --network net1 --fixed-ip 
subnet=subnet1,ip-address=cafe:babe::5 port1
  openstack server create --flavor 1 --image cirros --port port1 server1
  openstack port set --fixed-ip subnet=subnet1,ip-address=cafe:babe::6 port1

  Expected result: port1 is updated with the new fixed ip.

  Actual result: Neutron API gives the error "IP address cafe:babe::6 is
  not a valid IP for the specified subnet."
