This is a commit which fixes #53033.
The commit was missing in the PR.

It disables the now obsolete assertion about vswitches being incompatible with systemd-networkd

Motivation for this change

Enable use of systemd and openvswitch managed by nixos.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits
Systemd dependencies for scripted mode
were refactored according to analysis in #34586.

networking.vswitches can now be used with systemd-networkd,
although they are not supported by the daemon, a nixos receipe
creates the switch and attached required interfaces (just like
the scripted version).

Vlans and internal interfaces are implemented following the
  template format i.e. each interface is
described using an attributeSet (vlan and type at the moment).
If vlan is present, then interface is added to the vswitch with
given tag (access mode). Type internal enabled vswitch to create
interfaces (see openvswitch docs).

Added configuration for configuring supported openFlow version on
the vswitch

This commit is a split from the original PR #35127.
