Hi All

fixed asap...

There are 3 ways I can see this fixed:
- update guests so all have same MAX_SKB_FRAGS (that includes windows
drivers (windows drivers use 19 for MAX_SKB_FRAGS))
-add some sort of negotiation between host and guest
- change MAX_SKB_FRAGS to 19 to accommodate all guests

Unfortunately first one requires changes to the guest and most don't have
that luxury. So the only way I see it could be fixed without breaking
compatibility even more  is
