In the unstable repo you can set the vif's name with the 'vifname=' parameter.

However, if you reboot a domain the vif will temporarilly disappear, so any 
iptables, ebtables, routes or bridging rules will be ripped out. You need to 
reissue them when the interface comes back up -- you can do this by adding the 
rules to the vif-bridge script.
