Sure Ilya, I will re-submit the patches after rebasing with latest 4.1

> enables orchestration of virtual networks in VMware environment over

> > Background:-
> > -----------------
> > VMware Distributed Switch is an aggregation of per-host virtual switches
> presented and controlled as a single distributed switch through vCenter Server at
> the Datacenter level.  vDS abstracts configuration of individual virtual switches
> and enables centralized provisioning, administration, and monitoring.
> > vDS is integral component of vCenter. Hence the native vDS support makes
> sense for wider and larger deployments of Cloudstack over vSphere.
> > Each Standard vSwitch represents an independent point of configuration that
> needs to be managed and monitored. The management of virtual networks
> required by instances in the cloud is tedious when virtual networks have to span
> across large number of hosts. Using distributed vSwitch (vDS) simplifies the
> configuration and monitoring.
> > Being standalone implementations, standard vSwitches do not provide any
> support for virtual machine mobility. So there needed a component  to ensure
> that the network configurations on the source and the destination virtual switch
> are consistent and will allow the VM to operate without breaking connectivity or
> network policies. Particularly during migration of VM across hosts, the sync up
> among peers need to be taken care.  However in case of distributed vSwitch
> during VMotion, the vCenter server, would update the vSwitch modules on the
> hosts in cluster accordingly.
> > Following features are available with a Distributed Switch over and above
> Standard vSwitch of vSphere.
> > 1. Shaping of inbound (RX) traffic
> > 2. Supports a central unified management interface through vCenter
> > Server 3. Supports Private VLANs (PVLANs) 4. Provides potential
> > customization of Data and Control Planes 5. Increased visibility of
> > inter-virtual machine traffic through Netflow 6. Improved monitoring
> > through port mirroring (dvMirror) 7. Support for LLDP (Link Layer
> > Discovery Protocol), a vendor-neutral protocol.
