Adds service for OVS and enables ODL DPDK deployments
In order to deploy OpenDaylight with DPDK we need to copy the DPDK config for OVS done in the neutron-ovs-dpdk service template, without enabling OVS agent for compute nodes. To do this correctly, we should inherit and openvswitch service which is a common place to set OVS configuration and parameters. Note: vswitch::dpdk config will be called in prenetwork setup with ovs_dpdk_config.yaml so there is no need to include that in the step config for neutron-ovs-dpdk-agent service or opendaylight-ovs-dpdk. Changes Include: - Creates a common openvswitch service template, which in the future will migrate to be its own service. - Renames and fixes OVS DPDK configuration heat parameters in the openvswitch template. - neutron-ovs-dpdk-agent now inherits the common openvswitch template. - Adds opendaylight-ovs-dpdk template which also inherits common ovs template. - Uses OVS DPDK config script to allow configuring OVS DPDK in prenetwork config (before os-net-config runs). This has an issue where hieradata is not present yet, so we have to redefine the heat parameters and pass them via bash. In the future this should be corrected. - Adds opendaylight-dpdk environment file used to deploy an ODL + DPDK deployment. - Updates neutron-ovs-dpdk environment file.
