Usually the vendor site (e.g. HP, IBM) has it.

Ask supermicro for updated firmware, perhaps?

You might also want to try:
- booting native kernel, and use qemu/KVM with bridge setup (to make
sure that the problem is NOT xen-related), possibly with
manually-created bridge
- test latest vanilla kernel (which should work fine as dom0 kernel),
just in case it's fixed there already
- if it IS xen-specific problem, try latest 4.1.
