It occurs to me that we perhaps ought to split the configs into
two pieces too.

The Xen and UML drivers only support the network driver, so they
don't need the network filter configs

The OpenStack NOVA project does not want the default NAT network,
but it does want the network filter configs.

So I'm thinking instead of libvirt-daemon-configs, create:

  - libvirt-daemon-config-network
  - libvirt-daemon-config-nwfilter
