>From Ian Pratt and Andy Smith:

vifname support (present in previous versions of Xen), has been removed.  It
should be resurrected.

The following config file:

name   = "ircd"
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
root   = "/dev/sda1 ro"
memory = 128
disk   = [ 'phy:vg00/domu_ircd_root,sda1,w',
           'phy:vg00/domu_ircd_swap,sda2,w' ]
nics   = 1
vif    = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:6b:18:81, bridge=xenbr0, vifname=vif-ircd.0' ]

after creation results in the following in dom0:

$ sudo xm list
Name                              ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State  Time(s)
Domain-0                           0      128     1 r----- 37.0
ircd                               2      128     1 -b---- 11.4
$ brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
xenbr0          8000.feffffffffff       no              peth0

Networking works fine, so it just looks like the vifname parameter was
