Mainly a quick sanity check, but when creating GRE tunnels between compute and network nodes, do I need to manually create a bridge in the interfaces file or is this only required for the external interface on the network node? Pretty sure I don't but thought I'd make sure before I try.

If you are telling openvswitch-agent that you are using br-tun as your tunnel bridge, then you do need to create the br-tun. TO do this you can use $ ovs-vsctl add-br br-tun. Once the bridge is created when the ovs agent is started it will handle the rest.
