should be straight forward, i.e. use a vlan
interface instead of the normal one for the
guest config (eth0 -> eth0.100) the tools
will automagically create the interface for
you (and use vlan tagging for that), if you
don't want that behaviour (e.g you want to
setup them yourself), just use the nodev or
novlandev commands ...

just to summarize:

 ip= nodev
        ip will be used, nothing will be created

 ip= dev=eth0
        ip will be assigned to eth0, and used

 ip= dev=eth0.10 novlandev
        ip will be assigned to eth0.10 (which
        must exist) and will be used

 ip= dev=eth0.10
        vlan device eth0.10 will be created
        (eth0 must exist) the ip will we assigned
        and used

interfaces and assignments done by the tools
will be removed on guest shutdown ...
