Really? 3.4.2 should bevahe the same way as 4.0 regarding bridged
networking. Unless if you have your own custom network-bridge script?

The one responsible for creating vif-veth pair in dom0 is the netloop
module. After that, network-bridge script does some renaming (like old
eth0 -> peth0, and veth0 -> eth0 for older version of xen).

The one documenting the change? not that I know of. Also like I said,
it's not a change in Xen 4.0, but in previous versions (don't know
