Re: [Xen-users] gplpv: re-enabling the nic adapter removes it

Just tried with the latest testing version and it still
behaves the same. i.e Re-enabling the nic crashes the driver. Rather,
the "enabling" dialogue gets stuck with this latest testing version
and the only way out is by forcefully destroying the domain. As
usually I have two nic adapters in domu.

The required debug log is here:
