Although for a different use I setup a bridge that doesn't bind to any
interfaces, it is meant to be used by qemu later where several tap
interfaces will be connected.

I suppose that now systemd-nspwan might also be able to make use of a
similar setup, as it seems Arnaud is trying to use, I haven't tried it
myself though (and it seems to be a recently added functionality).
