The bridge and physical interface MUST be up. On your case, the bridge
is eth1 and the physical device is peth1. It does NOT need to have an
IP address though.

If I'm not mistaken earlier versions of Xen uses xenbr0/xenbr1 as
bridge name, so that might be the change you get.

If it works, that would be best.

... but it doesn't work, you can use the old version as a workaround :)
If that still doesn't work, kernel 2.6.18 from xen.org might give
better results.
