I've recently setup a few machines with 3.2 64bit without any unresolvable 
These machines all run pv domU's and a view "basic" hvm domUs.

As I've got one machine left for internal use and testing, I would like to take 
look at pciback with VT-d support (bios screen shows a VT-d [enable|disable]).

My question is, do I need to add patches, or use specific changesets to have 
code available in xen / dom0 kernel? If so, could someone provide me link?
Indeed, I found a lot of information in xen-devel, but I don't know which of the
submitted patches are accepted and which are merged into mercurial.

Is redirection of e.g. a pci network card or a pci isdn card possible for hvm
domU's without special driver support by the guest (say: windows)?
Is there any support for pci/e and/or pci-x?

Lots of questions ;)

Could someone please shed some light?

Thanks in advance.
