Probably due to the BUG_ON from the patch below, i changed it into a WARN_ON.
And i seem to hit it, but only in one of the guests at the moment and it

xennet_make_frags() is able to split the skb->head in multiple page-size

It should do the same for fragments
Right, I just want to be reproduce the issue so I can know I've fixed it
properly ;-)
Hi Ian,

I can reproduce this BUG_ON when running netperf/netserver test between two domus running on the same dom0. The domu and dom0 all use v3.7-rc1.

When I tried to rebase my persistent grant netfront/netback patch on latest kernel, netperf/netserver test never succeeded. I did some test to find out that v3.6-rc7 works fine, but v3.7-rc1, v3.7-rc2 and v3.7-rc4 does not succeed in netperf/netserver test. So I keep my persistent grant patch only based on v3.4-rc3 now.

Konrad thought about commit 6a8ed462f16b8455eec5ae00eb6014159a6721f0 in v3.7-rc1, and suggested me to test your debug patch in netfront. This BUG_ON happens soon after running the netperf/netserver test case.
