Doc Text:
An admin user can now specify the Provider network type (the physical mechanism by which the virtual network is implemented), when creating a new network. Previously, the dashboard (horizon) defaulted to the 'Local' provider network type, and it was not possible to select another type. The types 'Flat', 'VLAN', 'GRE', and 'VXLAN', and 'Local' can now be selected in the new 'Provider Network Type' drop-down field. Depending on the type, a segmentation ID, tunnel ID, or physical network name must be additionally specified.

There are few different network providers types when creating new network using quantum.

How to test:

Neutron should have the provider network extension configured (you can check with `neutron net-list`, the extension name is "provider").

1. Log in as admin
2. Go to Admin -> Systems -> Create network
3. A new "Provider Type" option should be available

Because the provider type depends on the plugin but there is no way to determine which types are available from the APIs, Horizon shows all possible options and is expected to fail gracefully and show an error message for the ones not actually handled by the backend.

However, a setting was additionally implemented for deployer to manually hide the unneeded options if necessary. In /etc/openstack-dashboar/local_settings

   # <all the usual options>
   'supported_provider_types': ['local', 'flat', 'gre'] # Example values
   'segmentation_id_range': {'vlan': [1024, 2048], 'gre': [4094, 65536]} # Example values

(See http://docs.openstack.org/developer/horizon/topics/settings.html#openstack-neutron-network for more information on these 2 settings)
