Hi Nick,

I dont' know if it's really necessary, but we're disabling transmission
checksums on every domain including dom0.
Btw. some weeks ago i noticed a thread at the list with problems using
tg3 cards. As we don't own cards with Broadcom Tigon3, i didn't mention.

This sounds really strange. We've tried different kinds of domU disks and
are currently using dom0 LVM's on locally attached raid arrays. It is
really paranoid, but we avoided disk images with the same filesystem as
the underlaying. so we didn't test ext3 on ext3 or xfs on xfs. Besides
this restriction, we didn't notice any BIG performance problems.
