Re: [libvirt] Using Libvirt to change the bridge a virtual network card of a running vm is connected to

I wrote a patch to change the mapping between a virtual bridge interface and the host bridge while the host is up. It's based on commit 6fba577e505611e6c25c68e322942eab7754de7e. The host and the interface definition I used for testing are also attached.
I would be glad if the patch could be added to the repo.
