do you need 3 physical nics? or just multiple virtual nics?

i had a problem with this a while back for a few firewalls because i
wanted a bunch of vlans in a domU. long story short, doing the vlans
inside the domU vs outside worked out much better for both managment
and performance. however, i had serious issues with broadcom tg3
chipset and vlans+xen. once switching to e1000 everything was nice.

lots of info, may not be applicable, just throwing it out there.

Just curious, what's the status of supporting more than 3 NIC's in a DomU?
Have the patches made it into any official Xen tree yet?

I'd like to move some of my firewalls into Xen systems, but really need
support for all my NIC's before I can do that.. :)
