Yeah,  sounds good to me - I just picked the first side-effect 
free thing that I found. SIOCGIFFLAGS would let us check that
the interface was actually up, as well as merely existing.

Cut & paste from the virDomainSaveConfig, which had a number
of extra args to this equivalent method, hence multi-line.

Yes, would make more sense.

Will sort that. SHould also pre-create the directories here used
by LXC / UML / QEMU drivers.

Turns out this support has been compiled out of the Fedora RPMs
for years, so its a silent no-op. Upstream has officially deprecated
its use and indicated that it will be removed, and if you've not
compiled out of the binary, its use will throw an error on startup.
It also isn't used for storing lease dnsmasq gives out - its only
for reading in a pre-defined set of mappings at startup. So basically
useless :-)

Ha, ok will rename that.

I removed the --keep-in-foreground flag from dnsmasq args, so the momnet
we start it, it daemonizes itself. We launch with virRun() instead of
virExec() which does the neccessary waitpid() at startup, so when shutting
it down, there's nothing to wait for.
