I posted some info on how to do this just recently (today?). It might
have been on the -dev list though. It is easiest just to not install the
xennet drivers in the first place.

This problem shouldn't happen though... can you tell me as much as you
can about your Dom0 and hypervisor (eg what dist, how did you install
xen, etc) as I have not been able to reproduce the problem yet...
