Xen PCI Device Passthrough

A patch[1] from Daniel P. Berrange "provides initial support for PCI device passthrough in Xen, at time of boot. It does not (yet) implement device hotplug for PCI". "XenD only supports 'unmanaged' PCI devices - ie mgmt app is responsible for detaching/reattaching PCI devices from/to host device drivers. XenD itself won't automatically do this".
