[pve-devel] Be sure to have the bridge up

didn't know for /etc/network/intefaces.new (I'm always configure at hand ;)

So indeed, it's not needed.

I think we should simply fail instead. 

Note: we always wtite /etc/network/interface.new, and only commit 
those changes on reboot. So I do not really see the use case for that patch? 

If an advanced admin want to activate a bridge he can simply do an 'ifup'?
