Hi Zoltan,

Thanks for the patch, and for what it's worth:

With Zoltan's v3 patch, I have ran the same tests as i did while reporting the 
regression and when that worked out ok stressed netback and netfront some extra 
this afternoon.
The patch fixes the regression for me, no corruption, no problems with SSL 
connections anymore and i haven't spotted anything else.

So as a fix for the immediate regression you may put on a tested-by :-)

On the discussion about the rest of the fallout i don't think i contribute that
