Hi list,

kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 and 
do not detect/initialize/whatever my eth1 network card any more. 

everything is working as expected. 

With the two recent kernels I only get an Interface named __tmp786686833
which is not added to xenbr...

lspci -v to the adapter in question says

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82572EI Gigabit Ethernet

ip link says

    link/ether 00:1b:21:0e:a9:3b brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

In modprobe.conf I have 
alias eth1 e1000
for the adapter in question. The module itself is loaded.

Any Ideas how to fix this?
