[ClusterLabs] odd cluster failure

(Apologies if this is a duplicate. I accidentally posted to the old
linux-ha.org address, and I couldn't tell from the auto-reply whether my
message was actually posted to the list or not).

For the second time in a few weeks, we have had one node of a particular
cluster getting fenced. It isn't totally clear why this is happening. On
the surviving node I see:

Feb  2 16:48:52 vmc1 stonith-ng[4331]:   notice: stonith-vm2 can fence
(reboot) vmc2.ucar.edu: static-list
Feb  2 16:48:52 vmc1 stonith-ng[4331]:   notice: stonith-vm2 can fence
(reboot) vmc2.ucar.edu: static-list
Feb  2 16:49:00 vmc1 kernel: igb 0000:03:00.1 eth3: igb: eth3 NIC Link is
Down
Feb  2 16:49:00 vmc1 kernel: xenbr0: port 1(eth3) entered disabled state
Feb  2 16:49:01 vmc1 corosync[2846]:   [TOTEM ] A processor failed, forming
new configuration.

OK, so from this point of view, it looks like the link was lost between the
two hosts, resulting in fencing. The link is a crossover cable, so no
networking hardware other than the host NICs and the cable.

On the other side I see:

Feb  2 16:46:46 vmc2 kernel: xenbr1: port 16(vif17.0) entered disabled state

Feb  2 16:47:12 vmc2 kernel: xenbr1: port 2(vif21.0) entered forwarding

 (and then there are a bunch of null bytes, and the log resumes with reboot)

More messages about networking, except that xenbr1 is not the bridge device
associated with the NIC in question.

I don't see any reason why the link between the hosts should suddenly stop
working, so I am suspecting a hardware problem that only crops up rarely
(but will most likely get worse over time).
Is there anything anyone can see in the log that would suggest otherwise?

Thank you,
