Using Gentoo, with the same driver (now). The only thing I can think of
now is that the 'bridge' iptables stuff in /proc/net are set wrong again
after boot. That kill the traffic, with a working driver. I only changed
these values with the old driver while testing with a Xen host on eth1.

I'll investigate that possibility too.
