There was a discussion about this a while back.  Airbus refers to
these devices as wing fences, at least on the A300/A310/A320.  The
A320-100 series, of which several dozen were produced, does not have
wing fences.  The A320-200 does have them, as well as various other
improvements.

More details can be found in the archives -- look for a discussion
about British Airways A320s if nothing about A320 "winglets" jumps
out.  Archives of sci.aeronautics.airliners (which are due to be
updated within the next week or so) are available for anonymous ftp
on ftp.kei.com and rascal.ics.utexas.edu.
