It all sounds and looks good to me. Some comments below, but nothing
major.

Two spaces! Oh noes! Yay for nitpicks!

I'd probably use SIOCGIFFLAGS for this.

(Alternative is to use SIOCGIFBR to iterate over bridge names, but the
simpler approach is better)

Odd formatting.

s/LIB_DIR/STATE_DIR/ perhaps?

Also, I'd prefer to see dirs like this created by "make install" and/or
RPM install.

e.g. with read-only root if you wanted /var/lib/libvirt to be read-only
and bind-mount a tmpfs onto /var/lib/libvirt/network

Worth keeping this comment - e.g. someone could come along and change it
do s/=/ /, check that it works with newer dnsmasq and then 6 months
later get a report that it doesn't work with older dnsmasq.

--dhcp-leasefile not needed? Worth a comment in the commit log.

Perhaps rename this to stateFile - I got confused for a second thinking
you were deleting the actual config file here.

Why no more waitpid? Zombies, no?
