Hi, Simon
I've read it, and it's much more complete than before. Thanks a lot.
Beside, you don't write about the library PCI devel that you need when you
compile Xen to enable PCI passtrought, and so, the use of VT-d. Debian
package is libpci_dev.
Is this library still necessary to use VT-d? If yes, shouldn't you write
about it in this wiki page?
>From my experience, I lost some times before finding that I had to compil
with this lib.
Hope this will help someone.
