I am also seeing this, but with not as much variability. Actually I am
seeing significantly less throughput (1/6th) for dom0->domU then
domU->dom0, and for dom0->domU, I am seeing +/- 15% variability. I am
looking in to it, but so far I have not discovered anything.

So you know what cpus the domU and dom0 are using? You might try pinning the
domains to cpus and see what happens.
