If I do so, ifup prints the following errors:
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
Failed to bring up eth0.

I think the ethernet device is not supported by the kernel, as you
mentioned before (maybe the device is to new for the kernel version
provided by xensource). How can I build a different kernel to use it
with xen? I have not found any patches at xen.org that can be apply to
e.g. my Debian kernel to use it as a Dom0. Is there a how to or
something like that?
