KVM: Add auxiliary functions to handle tap devices

Add two new functions, _OpenTap and _ProbeTapVnetHdr, to
hypervisors.hv_kvm.

_ProbeTapVnetHdr checks if the host kernel supports the virtio net header

kvm: Improve network syntax and tests

The current syntax when defining a NIC uses a pair of arguments, like this:
