[alex@...lalex linux-git]$ dmesg | grep -i xid

I have only seen these messages since 3.4-rc1. Vanilla kernels up to 3.3, and stock Fedora 16 kernels (kernel-3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64) did not display this problem. However, I cannot confirm that the latest stock kernel is free from the message, since I prefer 
to run the latest RC kernel on my home machine.

I will check this. However, since the message only appears after an hour of so of moderate bittorrent traffic, it might take a while to confirm.

It does recover, after a few seconds.
