Ok, so this takes care of letting the hsot correctly route guest traffic
off the box. The local LAN router still also needs to have routing table
setup to ensure other physical hosts can reach the guests. So, this patch
is sufficient in this regard & I've committed it to CVS.

In theory I think it might be possible to avoid the need to configure the
local LAN router, by messing with proxy_arp, but I've not got it to work
so far.
