Full details:

In a nutshell, a state may occur where the Xen Dom0 disables networking 
for a DomU after what is seen as a malformed packet gets sent. This 
seems to be a random occurrence and has been reported before. This also 
fixes the MAX_SKB_FRAGS problem we ran in to earlier.

Test kernel RPMs are available at:

Feedback is sought on Dom0s that used to trigger network disconnects 
before the MAX_SKB_FRAGS patch was introduced in kernel-xen-3.8.2-2

Comments via the bug tracker are preferred.
