RE: Reboot on *DOM0* while/after installing GPLPV drivers

Thanks for your continued work on this.
See below for the vif and bridge results of an ifconfig -a (extracted the 
bridge and particular interface).
Let me know if there is more info you could use.

What does ifconfig and brconfig show for the virtual interface on
the dom0 side ?
bridge0: flags=41<UP,RUNNING> mtu 1500

mtu 1500
        address: aa:00:00:51:02:15
        inet6 fe80::a800:ff:fe51:215%xvif8.0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0xb
