Yes, there is definitely a reference-counting bug in Xen. Once a
guest prints out that particular message, it really is time to reboot
the machine!

Informative, as the packet gets copied into a buffer that is big
enough. I just wanted to know how large the buffers should be that I
allocate for received packets -- I want to make it small enough that
buffer accounting in the sockets layer isn't thrown off, but large
enough that packets don't have to be copied to fit. The message tells
me that my chosen size was a bit too small.
