David Shaughnessy ea8d60f561 Added agent specific API support to L2 extensions
- Introduces an API to allow l2-agents to access resources within
  the Open vSwitch Agent, specifically the integration and tunnel bridges.
- adds consume_api method to the AgentCoreResourceExtension class.
- modifies the AgentExtensionManager class to accept the AgentExtensionAPI
  class as an optional argument.
- adds the OVSAgentExtensionAPI class.
- modifies ovs_lib and ofswitch to include a list of uuid stamps
  to exempt from flow deletion.
- adds the OVSBridgeCookieMixin class that manages the distribution of
  cookies and maintains the list of reserved cookies.
- modifies OVSNeutronAgent to initialize OVSAgentExtensionAPI and pass
  into the AgentExtensionManager.
