Yes, I did a project involving this because we were integrating OpenStack in a
system that used systemd-networkd primarily for networking.

The key thing you need to do is to order before and bring in network-pre.target.
We used the following units:
The openvswitch-setup service calls an ansible script so that we can do
configuration on first-boot from files dropped in. The script is:
One unfortunate "gotcha" with doing this is that in all released versions of
systemd-networkd there is a bug which causes networkd to fail if it is started
immediately after a link configuration change. This is not normally a problem
because networkd is usually the only service involved in link configuration.
is the required fix, if you need to backport a patch.
