I think I have found the information, in the RHEL documentation -

but I have to chuckle that it appears they have not fully updated the
information beacause of this blurb:

To create a bridge (br0) based on the eth0 interface, execute the
following command on the host:

# virsh iface-bridge eth0 br0

what the heck is an eth0 interface, they already took that away too ;)
