In this case I've configured eth0 (in domU) with an IP in the same
VLAN/subnet as dom0.  I've tried using x.x.x.254 as the gateway and
alternatively x.x.x.114 (dom0) as the gateway but neither works for normal
IP traffic.  I say 'normal' IP traffic as broadcast traffic is seen by domU.

Since the Xen network scripts set up a bridge, all layer 2 traffic is
visible at the network interfaces of your unprivileged domains. You
don't need to bother with the vif interfaces. Just configure your eth0
inside the guest domain with a valid network setting and packets should
get to your network interface.
