The script is still installed but nobody is calling it.
If you are using xl you need to add

/etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge start

somewhere in your init scripts.

If you use xend you need to uncomment the line

# (network-script network-bridge)

in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp.

It is worth mentioning this in the wiki so that people can still have
the old behaviour if they want to.
