After thinking about this further I guess it would look like somehow
being able to configure a "port" (the one connected to the kvm VM) on
the linux bridge as being a vlan trunk. Alternatively, if the guest
(also running linux) were able to support QinQ I think I could configure
QinQ on the guest as well as on the port on the Juniper switch, though
that would only work with 1 guest, so the first solution would be preferred.
