Hi all,

I have a simple question about the device passthrough functionality,
that Xen 3.3 started to support. Does the functionality provide direct
I/O for "system volume" in guest domain? I suppose extension of many
components, such as guest firmware, will be needed. Somebody have a 
plan to do the extension?

Best regards,

Jun Kamada
