This is with a PVops domU kernel? If so then I'm surprised this is a
regression rather than a never passed. Until very recently a pvops
kernel would not even attempt to send a gratuitous ARP after a
migration, which could lead to 20-30s timeouts like this. (I suppose it
might spuriously pass if a test run got very lucky?)

This was fixed in v2.6.36-rc1 and was backported to stable kernel
v2.6.32.19 and various v2.6.(>32).y as well.

Even with the fix in place the gratuitous ARP behaviour is disabled by
default so you need to enable the net.ipv4.conf.<dev>.arp_notify sysctl
for any device you want to send the notifications. When I was testing I
did this by adding
        net.ipv4.conf.default.arp_notify = 1
to /etc/sysctl.conf and that seemed to do the trick.

(remember that we are testing at the moment until is
