[CentOS-virt] proper bridging technoque

I wrote this last year. I've found no other description that lays out
the difficulties of KVM bridges,  tagged VLAN's, and pair bonding.


I'm not working for that university anymore, so I've not had an
opportunity to update it. But it's pretty complete. The anaconda with
its internal use of NetworkManager tools that come from upstream
*cannot be convinced* to properly configure these settings, they're
simply not available setup options. You have to set them up manually
on the KVM server after basic OS installation.

These are some of the reasons I reject NetworkManager for any server
setups or virtualization environments. It lacks the most basic setup
features such as pair bonding or bridge setups, and I've not yet seen
evidence of improvement in the upstream codebase.
