I don't know whether this is an issue with the "re" driver or something
else that's affecting the "re" driver (the way Xen handles network
traffic). Though as far as I know, when a collision is detected, the
behavior is for the sender to invoke it's backoff algorithm and to wait
a set amount of time before transmitting again. if this is actually
occurring then there would be performance degradation.
Would you mind adding your feedback on my PR up at freebsd.org just to
let the "re" maintainer know it's not just me? The PR is 154236. Would
Greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

whether they have seen the same issue or know what may be causing it.
I can confirm seeing it here also, you are not alone:
$ netstat -i
Name Mtu Network Address Ipkts Ierrs Idrop Opkts Oerrs
re0 1500<Link#1> 00:16:3e:08:b4:c7 21150230 0 0 4101045 0
I had not noticed it before. I am not encountering any packet loss
or other networking problems. No idea about the reason.
This is on FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p2 amd64 with GENERIC kernel.
