[Xen-users] Does xl still use vif?

Host and Guest (Dom0 and DomU): OpenSUSE 12.1, created using susestudio
XEN: 4.1.2

In Dom0, I followed http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/HostConfiguration/Networking to create a bridge on a "dummy" interface called inter0.
# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
inter0               8000.020c563ba59a       no              dummy0

It was specified the DomU (PVM) config file with:


When I created the VM with xl, the VM could not communicate with Host. No vif[m].[n] interface was brought up, and obviously brctl did not show it. An vif interface was actually created, as seen in /sys/class/net. This interface disappeared after shutdown the VM

When I created the VM with xm, the bridge was used properly (i.e., vif interface was up and added to the bridge).

Does xl still use vif? Is there anything missing? Am I supposed to manage the vif interfaces manually? Or is it mandatory to name the bridge xenbr[n]?
