MacOS network bridging using vmnet framework

Hi all -

I've been playing around with qemu-system-arm on a MacOS 10.15 box.  I'm trying to bridge the guest but I haven't had any luck.  It looks like the proper way to do this is with a TAP device.  AFAIK, this was done in the past by installing a TUN/TAP kernel extension (kext), which Apple has since clamped down upon.   I haven't pursued this since it's looks like a dead-end.   I did notice that Apple has a framework called vmnet (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/vmnet) which offers VM network bridging.  I didn't see any references to vmnet in master,  Is vmnet a good fit in this case as a new TAP implementation, like tap-macos-vmnet.c.  Or am I going off into the weeds and there is something obvious I'm missing.
