The 10G NIC chipset is Boardcom 57710

Rhel 5.2 include the bnx2x module as the chipset 57710 driver module

It works well on the kernel 2.6.18-92-el5,the two netwrok ports works at the 
speed 10G 
bits/s, the data stream transmission is normally.

but when the kernel is 2.6.18-92-el5xen (OS run on XEN mode ),the 10G network 
ports link status is always keep the state of "no-linked"

Are you sure netpbm is a correct component to file this bug against? It looks more like a kernel/userspace problem to me.

This was a kernel bug, but should be fixed with the latest 5.3 kernel.  Closing out.
