Presumably taking the guest interface down makes no difference? (Not
sure you can unload the module, but have you tried?)

So, packets seem to be received by the guest, but if you tcpdump the
associated vifX.0 you don't see anything (whereas a tcpdump in the guest
indicates packets are being sent).

One way to debug this would be to add a dom0 sysrq key handler to dump
the producer consumer pointers, or otherwise export them via sysfs. Does
cat /proc/interrupts show rx interrupts on the vif?
