Thank you for sending this series.  I feel bad that this series did not
receive a timely review.  Let me help a little bit.

I don't entirely understand the series.  This is mostly because of a
lack of context, which the series could be revised to provide.

One issue I have is that the term "multipath" is used for a few
different purposes in networking.  Sometimes, multiple paths are used
for reliability, and sometimes they are used to take advantage of
bandwidth available along multiple paths.  I don't know which meaning is
intended here.

I also suffer a bit from not understanding the purpose to which these
patches will be put at a higher level.  At the cloud management system
(CMS) level, such as the level of Neutron or equivalent, how will the
user use this feature?

Once I understand the purpose a bit better, perhaps I can contribute to
providing reviews, or help direct the patches to someone who can better
review them.

(The answers to these questions should probably not be just in email,
but also added in appropriate places in the documentation for the
patches themselves.)
