I'm not even close to being on 'current' hardware. On 2.6.32, I get about 
120Mb/s recv rate to the domu, which is fine with me. We had this discussion a

I don't remember anything jumping out at me in 'ifconfig', but I'll look at it 
more closely when I provide James the tcpdump he asked for, in a few days. 
Definitely nothing in the dom0 kernel or qemu-dm logs.
