If it's the same error I was seeing (which I think it is), the problem
is due to trying to do a grant_copy with the PFN of a grant mapped page
in Dom0, which Xen refuses to perform.

I've never followed it up, but I think the problem should be fixed in
Linux, so that netback realises it is trying to perform a grant_copy to
a granted page, and use the grant ref instead of the PFN.
