I haven't tested 3.0.0. When I first read that I thought you were
referring to Xen 3.0.0 :)

What version of GPLPV are you using?

When network performance goes bad after a backend change the cause is
often the network offload (tcp checksum / large send), so you could try
and disable that and see what difference it makes.

If you use the debug version of GPLPV, is there anything interesting in
/var/log/xen/qemu-dm-<domu name>.log?
