After following the instructions here
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/Xen4QuickStart and installing the
kernel from Xen4 CentOS project
(kernel-3.4.61-9.el6.centos.alt.x86_64) I can't use any networking
because the firmware for my NIC is not available:

Bringing up interface eth0.3:  bnx2x 0000:02:00.0: firmware:
requesting bnx2x/bnx2x-e1h-
bnx2x: [bnx2x_init_firmware:11696(eth0)]Can't load firmware file
bnx2x: [bnx2x_func_hw_init:5476(eth0)]Error loading firmware
bnx2x: [bnx2x_nic_load:2118(eth0)]HW init failed, aborting

This seems similar to http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=6513 . Is
this a bug? Is this a known issue?
