[infra][neutron] Removing networking-calico from OpenStack governance

I don't know the history here around `calico-dhcp-agent` but has there been
previous efforts to propose integrating the changes made to it into
`neutron-dhcp-agent`? It seems the best solution would be to make the
functionality provided by the former into the latter rather than relying on
parent classes from the former. I suspect there are details here on why
that might be difficult but it seems solving that would be helpful in the
long-term.
