Without PV drivers you should have model=e1000 for the guest, dunno if
this is the default in RHEL 5.4. That's the best performing Qemu
PV drivers should be faster/fastest though, since there's no need for
any kind of emulation then.
Did you play with offloading settings, or try disabling checksumming on
the gplpv adapter settinst in Windows?
