$subject says pretty much all, this patch updates netfront and makes it store the network addresses of the interfaces in xenstore, so it's much easier to figure what IP some virtual machine has and (for example) ssh into it.

I would expect most setups will have a central authority assigning IP addresses to domains, either via DHCP or boot-time IP p'n'p. That would seem to be a better place to get domain-to-IP binding info from rather than trusting the domU itself. Unfortunately it's also slightly outside teh current scope of the dom0 tool stack.
