There is file called libvirt.xml.template
you can copy it for example to /etc/nova and add next line to nova.conf
Also you should disable using virtio for bridges

>From this template libvirt configuration files are generated -
so to use e1000 driver you should add next line to this template -
<model type='e1000'/> in bridge definition.
