  Honnestly this looks fine to me, I see that Daniel has arguments about
the detection method, I would just prefer to have it dynamic as this patch
implement than something static relying on configure or RPM dependancies.
  The goal to me is to try to provide best services on various installations,
since lxc and the associated kernel and net command will take a while to be
fully deployed, I prefer something very flexible at this point, even if
it may occasionally lead to a failure in some corner cases. The goal is
really to get as much people in a situation to use features the earliest
