Which kernel version?
Why do you use HVM guest? You'd generally get much better performance

Also, if you absolutely have to use HVM guest, you'd get better
performance if you use PV drivers (which AFAIK, only works on 2.6.18

If you use PV drivers, you should remove "type=ioemu".

I'd start with trying to get HVM domU's traffic work correctly,
preferably with PV drivers. Depending on your kernel version, it might
involve changing domU kernel. Once that work, start with the vlans.
One of the things to check is
