Yep. And it should be pretty obvious where you need to make changes.

I think my concern about having both network devices attached to the
bridge is probably unwarranted... with only qemu drivers you have the
tapX device and the unused vif device. Once the PV drivers become live
you'll have the vif device and the unused tapX device. Should be fine.

Only one way to find out though :)
