Here is xml of my VM, using "br0" bridge I defined with netctl:

     <interface type='bridge'>
       <mac address='52:54:01:hi:dd:en'/>
       <source bridge='br0'/>
       <model type='virtio'/>
       <driver queues='8'/>
       <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x18' 

I expect it does not matter how a bridge is defined, as long as it 
works. In /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf I have the below line:
bridge_helper = "/usr/lib/qemu/qemu-bridge-helper"
