I can speak only about my patches: I have manually tested them for the 
usecases where they likely to make a difference, plus they went through 
Xenserver's full test suite several times.

Beware, there are frags and frag_list which are two entirely different 
things with confusing names. In netback case, frags are used to pass 
through large packets for a long time. frag_list is used only since my 
grant mapping patches, to handle older guests (see comment in 
include/xen/interface/io/netif.h for XEN_NETIF_NR_SLOTS_MIN)
