I believe the ofi portion is complete and this is a request to enable it through the staypuft ui.

This option is available in the "Services Configuration" page for the Neutron service.
At least one ML2 mechanism must be selected from "Open vSwitch", "L2 Population", "Cisco Nexus".

Selecting "Cisco Nexus" opens sub page with fields (with validation) to configure access to switch.
