Neutron mechanism driver and agent for IBM z Systems PR/SM hypervisor in DPM mode

On IBM z Systems, certain workloads run better in a logical partition than
in a virtual machine of a software hypervisor such as KVM or z/VM.

The IBM z13 system (and IBM LinuxONE) introduced a new administrative mode
named "Dynamic Partition Manager" (DPM) that allows for managing the
firmware-based logical partition hypervisor (PR/SM) with the dynamic
capabilities known from software-based hypervisors.

These new dynamic capabilities provided by the DPM mode enables PR/SM to
act as a hypervisor managed by OpenStack using Nova.

This project supports adding the PR/SM hypervisor in DPM mode as a
hypervisor platform, by implementing a new Nova driver [1].
This project contains the related Neutron mechanism driver and l2 agent.
