Description of problem:
The following occurs in the syslog at high rates:
Nov 11 08:25:39 virtix kernel: Attempt to allocate order 5 skbuff. Increase MAX_SKBUFF_ORDER.
Nov 11 08:26:44 virtix last message repeated 1673 times
Nov 11 08:27:45 virtix last message repeated 2227 times
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Intel D940, dual core with 3 intel Pro 1000 network cards.
2. Install FC5 Xen0.
3. Upgrade with yum to kernel 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5xen0
3. Run one or more XenU guests (idle) (is this realy needed?>
4. Do a network based install over eth0 to a laptop (HTTP)
The syslog is flooded with messages:
kernel: Attempt to allocate order 5 skbuff. Increase MAX_SKBUFF_ORDER.
I migrated the machine (and the Xen-guests) to FC6 with yum.
The problem still exists with kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6xen on FC6.
Another way to reproduce the problem is to do a xenguest-install.
This produces some nice HTTP traffic over xenbr0, which causes the symptoms in

This report targets FC6, which is now end-of-life.
Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
