[RFE] Allow bridgeless networking
Last modified: 2016-04-26 10:32:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently Node is creating a bridge by default for it's primary nic.
Sometimes this is not needed, therefor Node should also be able to do a simple net setup by just using a NIC directly.
This will introduce a new configuration item (tbd) to choose the topology to be configured.
There are now patches in gerrit which introduce the necessary changes.
With those patches a basic installation works.
A few glitches, reminders for myself:
* Look at biosdevname
* bootif and bootproto are lost after reboot after install
* topology=direct isn't handled correctly
* ui doesn't get all necessary infos (ip, ...)
The patches are a major rewrite of the net backend and the auto-installer part.

bisodevname was nat called in any code segment that I touched.

That was the default case.
I modified the logic to keep BOOTIF. The reason is to keep the information what bootif the user selected during ai

Just a bug. Fixed.

Was related to the missing BOOTIF entry
The fix for this patch has been merged and is present in the released ovirt-node-3.0.0.
