This sounds like a problem in the if_re driver on FreeBSD or a bug in
Qemu emulation. As a workaround, could you try to use the emulated e1000
instead of the realtek? AFAIK it should also provide better performance.

Since you are using XenServer I'm not sure of the exact rune, with OSS
Xen you basically need to add "model=e1000" to the network configuration
line.
