RE: [Xen-devel] Secondary bus reset for VT-d device

What issue did you find?
I tested the python function do_secondary_bus_reset() on DQ35 and don't find 

You may add your log.debug(...) (the output is at /var/log/xen/xend.log) to 
tools/python/xen/xend/server/pciif.py and tools/python/xen/util/pci.py to debug 
the issue you found.

BTW, can you try the latest xen-unstable.hg (like 18407: c503269192f2) to see 
if your issue is still there?

I just tried it on my Q35 board. It looks that there is something
wrong with the secondary bus reset, but I can't get log to prove it.

So, anybody test it on Q35 board? Or, how to debug it?

Here is the tip I am using:

I would remember that if researchers were not ambitious
probably today we haven't the technology we are using!
