Package: xen-utils-common
Version: 3.0+hg11292-2
Severity: normal

After a recent etch upgrade (2.6.17, xen-3.0.2) I was unable to "xm create" until I
"modprobe netloop nloopbacks=10"

Error was network-bridge couln't create vif interface (backend not found).

brctl addbr ... fails because of no free netloop device.
passing more nloopbacks device to the module fixed the problem.

I use :
(network-script network-bridge)
(vif-script vif-bridge)

Maybe this occurs because of differents options to the kernel compilation.

I open this bug because it appens during a upgrade process
