I don't know about Xen 4.1 but for modern Xen with the xl toolstack then
you can pass arbitrary arguments to the device model using
device_model_args in your config file, which should enable you to pass
the necessary options.

I've no idea if xm supported the same thing or not, you could always use
a wrapper script around the dm I suppose.
