Well, I don't have a real work-around as I only used some test environment, 
but maybe something like:

Linux bridging users please note: During the upgrade to XCP 1.6 the network 
backend will be switched to Open vSwitch. Please revert any custom settings 
to your network interfaces (eg. other-config settings for pifs) or ensure 
(before the upgrade) your settings will work with Open vSwitch. 
Should you use an unsupported bondig mode (like LACP), it might be an option 
to delete that bond before the upgrade and recreate it afterwards.

Probably not perfect, but should describe the pitfal.
