I'm pretty concerned about this problem.

Right now: I suppose, it was fixed somewhere in new netfront driver.
(not checked).

If no, I have few ideas about workaround. Main is an event via xen-evtch
about suspending. Small module/appilcation in guest can sent a fake ARP
every time it got suspend event. Other is using xenstore to send command
to program from host. (both are ugly hacks).

Best way is still fake ARP from netback or netfront...
