I think I remember that I also needed the ip= argument. Not to
initialise the network in the domU (I do this via ifconfig, route) but
the get the IP address of the dom0 (=gateway) in the 10.x.x.x network.

Specifying ip= seems to ensures that dom0 gets the address whereas it otherwise could get or whatever and
makes it impossible to use a not dhcp setup with routing.

At least this is what I vague remember ...
