Check http://wiki.libvirt.org/page/Networking#Fedora.2FRHEL_Bridging which, I 
believe, is still the current documentation available.  As it says, 
NetworkManager does not support bridging and must be disabled on the host if 
you use bridging ... any qemu-kvm guests can use NetworkManager all they want.  
Also, you configuration files may be in error as compared to those shown in the 
example.

Yes, I was wondering how my host would function without eth0 being defined with 
a static IP or dhcp but it does ... it uses br0!
