I just wanted to suggest to use a "driver domain" with PCI passthrough,
but if that does not work for you, why don't you simply build the bridge
manualy? Not using the xen scripts, like e.g. debian does it.

Simply create a bridge named xen-br1 including the eth1 (don't let xen
rename it to peth1). And simply not configure the bridge on the dom0?

As you don't mention your distribution, I've no idea what scripts you
need to tweek.
