While reviewing this code, I can see current netback_init() is buggy.

It assumes all online cpus xen_netbk_group_nr are numbered from 0 to
xen_netbk_group_nr-1

This is not right.

Instead of using :

xen_netbk = vzalloc(sizeof(struct xen_netbk) * xen_netbk_group_nr);

You should use a percpu variable to get proper NUMA properties.

And instead of looping like :

for (group = 0; group < xen_netbk_group_nr; group++) {

You must use :

for_each_online_cpu(cpu) {
	...
}

[ and also use kthread_create_on_node() instead of kthread_create() ]
