Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] Fox for pcnet device model data corruption
>> Hi Ian,
>>    The attached patch fixes pcnet data corruption for VMX guests as

>Hi Nitin,
>This doesn't fix the problem for me. If I try to transfer, with scp, a

This fix is to VMX domain only.

>Unlike dropping packets, there's actual corruption that domU is seeing
