           Summary: rtl8139 problems with OpenBSD as HVM guest
           Product: Xen
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Unspecified
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: dmartin@xxxxxxxxxxxx

running OpenBSD as an HVM guest produces this error message every 10 seconds or

re0: watchdog timeout

this stops the network for a few seconds every time it happens, so it makes
network interface very slow.  Using the ne2k_pci interface works fine (but
limited to 10Mbps).  

I think the problem is with the rtl8139 emulation not providing watchdog
information as expected by OpenBSD.
