@robhoes robhoes Allow setting the VIF backend for a network
If, on a network, other_config:backend_vm is set to the UUID of a VM, this VM is
used for the VIF backends (netback) of any VIFs on the network.

This is useful for internal networks (only), since the key is set on a network
rather than on a PIF.

@thomassa Are you happy with this? Btw, this change is already present in the Tallahassee branch, and was successfully tested there.


If this is already in Tallahassee, I think we should just merge it.
