[Xen-users] Unable to get vifs to start in domUs

I've posted this before and never received any help.  Can someone please
assist or aim me in the right direction?

Dom0 is FC6, fully updated, with Xen 3.0.4 built from source.  domU
is ubuntu 6.1, but that's somewhat irrelevant.

I can't get any vifs to start up in domUs.  I get the dread "Device 0
(vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working" error.  I've
run udevmonitor and I see the add events but I never see a configure
event.  The startup stalls until it times out and I'm stuck.

The vif configuration from the hvm file is:

        vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0, mac=00:16:3e:00:00:11,
            ip=A.B.C.D' ]

("A.B.C.D" is really a public IP).  I have netloop loaded with 128
instances (from /etc/modprobe.conf):

        options netloop nloopbacks=128

I need to get this going and I don't seem to be the only person having
issues.  This can't be that farking difficult, but I'm at sea here.
