Pass bridge name to qemu as command line option
When starting qemu, set an environnement variable XEN_DOMAIN_ID,
to be used by qemu helper scripts
The only functional difference of using the br parameter is that the
bridge name gets passed to the QEMU script.
NetBSD doesn't have the ioctl to rename network interfaces implemented, and
thus cannot rename the interface from tapX to vifX.Y-emu. Only qemu knowns
the tap interface name, so we need to use the qemu script from qemu itself.

I think this is a bugfix but it has implications for non-NetBSD
systems and I think it would be best for it to get (or not get) an
explicit release-ack.

I think it is sufficiently low risk to take it now.  We don't think
this will cause trouble for other platforms but if it proves to, that
should be fairly obvious and caught in our testing.  So:
