The one thing I would ask beyond Eric's suggestions is that you use git
send-email to produce the patches - the patch you've sent doesn't apply
with git am, which would make it a pain to properly attribute to you.

If you're unfamiliar with using git, here's what you would do:

1) git clone git://libvirt.org/libvirt.git

2) cd libvirt

3) edit the files.

4) make check && make syntax-check (and fix any problems they find)

4) git add $list-of-files

5) git commit

   (give a nice descriptive log message with subject of
    "network: support mDNS on NAT networks")

6) git send-email -1

   (tell it to send to libvir-list redhat com)

I can then directly apply the patch with git am.

I'm surprised that doesn't generate a compile error, other cases of _()
with no %whatever will. It must be the ?: that's messing up the
compiler's checking. At any rate, that should be fixed (separate from
your patch though, of course)

Well, there is now at least a proposal for some sort of IPv6 NAT, but
libvirt networks only do routed IPv6 networks, so it shouldn't be necessary.
