Support for IPVS CNI Plugin #159
Added support for the plugin for IPv4 (does not support IPv6 yet). Can

@ivan4th Any thoughts on the test_src_master failure. It seems to do kubeadm init and shows a message (doesn't say it is an error) and then gets stuck in a kubeadm reset loop.
It seems like, with V1.11, the API version should be v1alpha2.
@rpothier Never tried that, and it's not listed as a way to setup networking using KubeAdm (whereas using kube-router is listed). Do you know if doing that will provide BGP (which is what kube-router does)? If not, then I'm not sure how it handles routing between nodes.
With kube-router, it uses bride CNI plugin, only for IPAM, and no hairpin or static routes need to be setup. In DinD, the YAML for kube-router sets up the CNI config.
Clarification: Probably should have been clearer on this PR description, but partly it is an issue with the ambiguity of kube-router. Although called a CNI plugin, kube-router is really a networking component, which is really a replacement for kube-proxy, plus more. It has both the advantage of IPVS performance and scale, and the added functionality of BGP for dealing with the routing.
It really is not a CNI plugin, per se, and uses the bridge plugin, with some different settings. For k-d-c, I defined a different CNI_PLUGIN, so that it doesn't do the bridge plugin setup in dindnet script. Like calico and others, kube-router has a YAML for setup. One thing it does in this YAML, is setup the bridge CNI config file, so functionality in dindnet is not needed (hence the separate CNI_PLUGIN type).
So, I'd like to make this available, as a CNI_PLUGIN "kube-router". I'm peeking into running kube-proxy in IPVS mode, as @rpothier mentioned, but, if that is another viable method, I'd like to provide that as a separate option for k-d-c, and not as an alternative for kube-router, because kube-router does much more (BGP) and makes the setup even simpler (and works with external BGP,...).
IOW, I'd like to move this PR forward, independent of kube-proxy in IPVS mode.
Kube-router is a replacement for kube-proxy that uses IPVS for load balancing containers and uses goBGP for creating network. This commit adds support for kube-router, by using a new CNI_PLUGIN setting called "kube-router". This will skip the bridge CNI plugin, and as part of kube-router setup, will install a custom bridge CNI config file. It will remove the kube-proxy daemonset, after starting up the kube-router daemonset. Note: kube-router currently supports only IPv4 (issue open for IPv6 support). A few warnings occur during up/down, but appear to be benign (e.g. kube-proxy warns to use a config file, no subnet to delete iptable rules for IPVS). Updated the "fixed" version scripts. NOTE: Will need to manually install ipset and ipvsadm on host, prior to using this caability.
