Ticket #1977 (closed defect: fixed)
Neighborhood doesn't work in qemu -- add rtl8139 driver.

Network Manager, and thus Presence Service, doesn't work in qemu.
NM requires a nic with link detection. Qemu's rtl8139 nic provides this, but the default ne2k does not.
The xo images don't have the 8139 driver.
berrange reports NM works in qemu when the driver is present.
The current recommended workaround is to disable NM, and use sugar fallbacks. In recent builds, this workaround has ceased working (beyond the first boot). Rather than trying to debug the workaround, can we fix the underlying problem?
Adding a 8139 driver to the build has been an informal todo item for some time. blizzard says the images are supposed to "just work". So not seeing a ticket, I add this one.
