Re: [Xen-users] emulated rtl8139 driver, openvswitch, and offload

    I have not been able to reliably disable Large Send Offload, Checksum
Offload and Scatter/Gather through the device manager GUI on Windows 2008
32bit/64bit with pv_drivers installed.  The Xen Net Device Driver will fail
to start and them the dom0 will panic and reboot.  I am very scared to
continue!  This happened to me twice today while I was going through and
disabling GSO/TSO/GRO on my broadcom bnx2 interfaces to fix a serious issue
we have with inter-Host network traffic.  Is there a way to do this that
doesn't involve crashing the dom0 and causing the whole box to reboot?
Also, is there a guide to updating the drivers?  I would like to install the
latest 357 drivers, but the one time I tried uninstalling them I had a BSOD
and had to reimage.
