No, I just use one. I don't use XEN_NETIF_EXTRA_FLAG_MORE. I thought you were 
questioning the existence of extra segments rather than this flag. I guess I 
got the wrong end of the stick.
I've not seen anything use XEN_NETIF_EXTRA_FLAG_MORE, but that's not to say 
nothing will use it in the future. Clearly something is needed to indicate 
subsequent extra segments should they ever be needed.
