OK one at a time :D
By "br100 works", does that mean if you put IP address on that
interface, you can access outside world (or at least other hosts also
located on vlan100)?
By "And then assign one IP ADDRESS to it. it can't ping the address of
outside internet.", does that mean you put IP address on domU but it
can't access anywhere? If yes, do a ping from domU and a tcpdump on
br100 and eth0.100, see which packets are missing (does arp receives
no reply? or is it only the icmp echo/reply gone missing)
Another thing to check. Are you using old broadcom NIC with tg3
driver? If yes, it's probably firmware problem. On one of my machines
I can't get bridging to work until I updated its firmware.

I'm not sure I understand your question. However you can do these:
Scenario 1: you can have eth0, create a bridge on top of it, share it
it domU, and do vlans in domU. It will work if you do NOT create the
same vlan on dom0 (e.g. do not create eth0.100 on dom0, create it only
on domUs). You may also need to set
/proc/sys/net/bridge/bridge-nf-filter-vlan-tagged to 0 (not quite sure
about this, as it has been a long time since I pass a trunk :P). From
domU perspective this is similar with connecting to a switch using a
Scenario2: you can do vlans on dom0, create a bridge for each vlans,
and tell domU to use the bridge. From domU perspective this is similar
with connecting to a switch using an access port.
