[Libguestfs] [PATCH 2/2] launch: libvirt: Use qemu-bridge-helper to implement a full network (RHBZ#1148012).



When using the libvirt backend, don't use the SLIRP.  Use
qemu-bridge-helper via libvirt to give us a full network connection.
One consequence of this is that 'ping' works in virt-builder
--run-command.

Note unfortunately this does not fix virt-rescue (since it overrides
the default backend and uses 'direct' for various reasons).
