[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] network: check for bridge name conflict with existing devices



Since some people use the same naming convention as libvirt for bridge
devices they create outside the context of libvirt, it is much nicer
if we check for those devices when looking for a bridge device name to
auto-assign to a new network.
