Grrr, that is my patch here


which thankfully was never applied upstream but did make its way into
openSUSE12.1.  In that thread, Ian suggested having the toolstack write
the literal tap device name to xenstore and then read it in the vif
script.  I have this on my todo list with very low priority, but seems I
should bump it now :-).

The xend toolstack writes the domain name under this node but xl/libxl
doesn't, hence the failure Erin is seeing.

Erin, you can revert the patch mentioned above to fix your problem. 
I'll try to work on the proper fix soon.
