I set up a config similar to:


and found that pings worked fine but TCP/UDP traffic would get checksum

Just noticed that. Pretty hard to troubleshoot.

With this patch, TCP/UDP checksum errors from dom0 are fixed, and domUs
can use TCP/UDP without turning off TX checksum offload.
Normal non-VLAN bridged configs still work fine, tested with xm-test.

Just a quick question : is there a work-around available without a full recompile of Xen kernels ?
