Yes it didn't bother me much either, but I suspect it may actually be
xenusb (since I don't see any xenusb related entries in device
manager) or something the driver isn't picking up.

Nope, but I gave it a try after your suggestion, turned off "Checksum
Offload", "Large Send Offload" and "Scatter/Gather". Didn't solve my
100% utilisation problem, but it does show some slight ISP to VM speed
improvement ( but that's for the 1meg and 5meg files, too small to be
a fair measure).
Have you tried upgrading xen, Dom0 kernel and compiling your own PV drivers?
