Compiled latest vanilla kernel and all is fine now.
Must be some Centos/Redhat customisation I guess.
Thanks for your help anyway

Thanks for your prompt response.
The LVS box is a Hyper-V virtual server and all offload settings are off.
#ethtool -k eth0
Offload parameters for eth0:
Anything else I can try?

Try disabling generic-recieve-offload.
ethtool -K eth0 gro off
I also disabled large-recieve-offload, although I never spent much time trying
to figure out which was the 'right one', since it was causing production
ethtool -K eth0 lro off
My issue was on RHEL6.3, so pretty much the same environment as you, although
my boxes were using the igb driver (systems using e1000e on older rev hardware
didn't seem to exhibit the LVS problem).
