I have tried that:

xl create -p ratelimittest1.cfg
xenstore-rm /local/domain/0/backend/vif/3/0/feature-gso-tcpv6
xenstore-rm /local/domain/0/backend/vif/3/0/feature-ipv6-csum-offload
xenstore-rm /local/domain/0/backend/vif/3/0/feature-split-event-channels

It didn't help. Nothing had exploded, though.

That didn't help either. The problem still occurs after upgrading dom0
to 3.14.3.

I am afraid, I cannot spend that much more time on investigating this
issue right now.
