ethtool in the guest changes when I change the offload settings, though
my ethtool doesn't seem to show IPv6 offloading settings.

In dom0 'ethtool -k' output doesn't change, as this seems to be
triggered by the guest features, which are written to xenstore after the
domain is unpaused and the kernel boots.

Yes, and there is only one 'event-channel' instead of separate RX and TX

So it seems, the 'xenstore-rm' does the trick, at list partially.
