     When Xen Dom0's network circumstance changed, DomU
should be notified in some special condition. For
example the below circumstance:
     ping from Guest A to DomU:
     Guest A --> eth0 - bond0 - xenbr0 --VIF(DOMU)
                 eth1 /
     when eth0 inactive, and eth1 active.
How is eth0 failing? Are you unplugging it, un-enslaving it or
some other sort of administrative action?
In my emulation environment, i unplug it or ifdown the interface,
I expect these would behave rather different, since the affect of ifdown
looks rather different to an unplug from the PoV of the switch.

Is the ifdown case something which you are trying to solve or just what
appeared to be a convenient test case? I'd be less inclined to worry
about explict admin actions such as that.

Unplugging the cable should cause:

Doesn't this state change cause the switch to which eth0 and eth1
attached to forget the MAC tables associated with the eth0 port,
that subsequent traffic will be flooded until it learns that eth1 is
new port?
