What is the status of jumbo frame support in dom0 and domU? Unless
something has changed I know it isn't supported in domU, but shouldn't

I think it'll just work, but it's untested. If the jumbo area spans multiple memory pages then it needs to be allocated with something like dma_alloc_coherent, or be represented by a fragmented skbuff. (i.e., hopefully the network stack and drivers don't assume that kmalloc() always return physically contiguous memory extents).
