I've rebuilt 1.4.1 with the IFF_ONE_QUEUE patch and tun_flags is now
0x7002; unfortunately, I'm still seeing this bug, twice in five trials.
Symptoms in `ifconfig t100` now differ; overruns stays at 0, and
"dropped" increases monotonically as I send packets. Those packets do
appear if I tcpdump t100 on the host, but not if I tcpdump t100 on the

I've turned off gro in the guest, which makes no difference, and tried
changing the queue sizes (post-hoc) in both guest and host, in the hope
of causing them to be emptied out, clearing the condition; again to no

The VMs in question are bridged to a large (and busy) VLAN with no
ingress filtering to speak of; I guess what's happening is that the
transmit queue is filled up by that traffic while the guest is in ipxe,
and it never gets out of that state when it happens... so maybe there is
still an underlying problem?
