To use these network device emulators, install the network device driver
on the guest, then modify the guest configuration file to specify the
controller model type: either |e100|; or |e1000|. For example, to use
the e1000 controller, set |model=e1000| in the |vif| entry in the guest
configuration file:

vif = [ 'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:00:00:00, bridge=xenbr0, model=e1000']

Create the guest again using the |xm create| command. The guest now uses
the faster e1000 controller.

thank you for that config bit. I always wondered, how you can emulate these kind of controller types. (never found anything about that in any documentation)
