Given that the guest is not going to crash (if it knows what it is
doing), we could just:

diff --git a/hw/xen_platform.c b/hw/xen_platform.c
index a9c52a6..a1e1a33 100644
--- a/hw/xen_platform.c
+++ b/hw/xen_platform.c
@@ -88,6 +88,7 @@ static void unplug_nic(PCIBus *b, PCIDevice *d)
     if (pci_get_word(d->config + PCI_CLASS_DEVICE) ==
         qdev_unplug(&(d->qdev), NULL);
+        qdev_free(&(d->qdev));

Anthony, can you confirm that this solves the problem for you?
