That's intentional - if you want to use a generic network script then
use the type=ethernet style of network config instead of type=bridge

Internally when sending the SEXPR to XenD for type=bridge, we do include
the (script) argument automatically with a value 'vif-bridge'. Likewise
when parsing the SEXPR into XML, we set the 'type=bridge' attribute if
the script name is 'vif-bridge', otherwise we set type=ethernet to 
indicate a custom, admin defined networking setup.

If the Solaris VIF setup script isn't called 'vif-bridge', then we can
just #ifdef the alternate name required for Solaris & everything else
should just work
