Re: [Xen-devel] bug: slab corruption (net backend?)

Can you disable tcp checksum offload (ethtool -K tx off) and see

Never seen that again since I've turned off CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG,
which seems to be incompatible with the page mapping the xen
backend drivers do.

Well, I'm not 100% sure of this. It looks like guard bytes aren;t placed around slab allocations when slab object size is near a power of two. But if guard header/footers are added to our skbuff data objects then yes: that will be broken for xen netback.
