No :(

Because the dom0 didnt need the drivers, they're not put in the initrd for
the dom0, but it doesn't calculate in the fact we want to use the same initrd
for the guests. I'm probably sounding like a broken record asking for these
drivers in the default initrd for the xen kernel (which is used for both
dom0 and guests).
