As mentioned on a post to a thread about drbd and Xen I've been seeing
some horrific packet loss under network and disk IO load which has been
causing huge problems for drbd syncing and replication.

Just out of curiosity have you disabled TX checksums? I didn't follow your
previous thread so I don't know that others had suggested. Try "ethtool -
K eth0 tx off" and see if that helps your TX packet loss.

Yes that was among the options I tested and it made no difference.
