I should have mentioned the dom0 kernel version at the beginning. Must
have forgotten.
It is 3.8.8-1.el6xen.x86_64 not self compiled but taken from CRC's repo.

Yea, right now the problem is not irritating but makes me just curious
since some most people encounter it. Not certainly the end of world
but would help if the driver doesn't crash.

Sure. Snippet of the logs is below. But I am afraid if kernel tells
anything but few telltale signs of what's happening other than telling
a vif is disabled.

 br0: port 3(vif159.0) entered disabled state
device vif159.0 left promiscuous mode
br0: port 3(vif159.0) entered disabled state
frontend_changed: backend/vif/159/0: prepare for reconnect
