Yeah, what we really need here is to have support for setting up TFTP
for libvirt's virtual networks - e.g.

  <tftp root="/var/lib/tftpboot/linux-install" />
  <bootp file="pxelinux.0" />

which would cause dnsmasq to be run with:

  --enable-tftp --tftp-root=/var/lib/libvirt/tftp \

we'd also need to open port 69 in our iptables rules.

Please file an RFE for this in bugzilla.redhat.com/Virtualization ...
maybe even give a shot at cooking up a patch?
