I'm curious what you mean by this.

libvirt's virtual networks currently only support the standard linux
bridge device. There is no code in libvirt to use openvswitch devices
for libvirt's virtual networks. The openvswitch support in libvirt only
applies to guest devices that use <interface type='bridge'>.

the linux host bridge driver with something that emulates that driver,
but is actually an openvswitch bridge on the backend. I hadn't
previously heard of this.
