move mac from eth0 to veth0,
set eth0 mac FF:FE:FF:FF:FF:FF (if i remeber correctly, check for peth0 mac)
ifconfig eth0 up
brctl addbr xenbr0
[brctl stp off, sethello 0, setfd 0, man brctl]
brctl addif xenbr0 eth0
brctl addif xenbr0 veth0 
ifconfig veth0 up
vconfig add veth0 100
vconfig add veth0 200
ifconfig veth0.100 up
ifconfig veth0.200 up
[return to brctl, use your imagination]

this can be normal, check if the driver support jumbo frame.

for sure, e1000 support jumbo frame.

that is not the right way.

uh, you can check also for "tx checksumming" (list are full of this).
