NetBSD doesn't seem to provide a default bridge, here is what NetBSD
does in vif-bridge:

xbridge=$(xenstore-read "$xpath/bridge")
brconfig $xbridge add $iface

I've removed the "x" prefixes, since I think they are not helpful. Later
on we can remove them from the NetBSD script if there's interest in
merging them.
