Re: [Xen-devel] PCI passthrough issue

Have had a look on both tcpdump captures.
1. From the OpenWRT domU: nothing special. Lot of STP traffic due to my
network architecture. Don't thing this could be the cause of my problem
since I'm always able to reproduce the failure whatever could be the
order of DNS requests. Don't see "big" DNS answers coming in, see
multiple requests before timeout.

2. From my gateway: nothing special here too. Same STP traffic (have
checked GW network setup as well). See each DNS requests my domU sent
and can see as well answers, which are not received by domU. No strange
ARP traffic.

I wanted to change the network, thinking about a bogus driver (never
know). My Dom0 has crashed during reboot and I've no way to remotely
reboot it (no remote power control and it seems that Magic SysRQ are not
transfered through my Putty/screen connection).

Will reboot it when at home and continue investigation with another
network card and maybe another operating system to check if bad
behaviour is still there.
