Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] [pvops-dom0] [patch] Hook Linux's PCI probe and remove callbacks
Hijack the pci_bus_type probe and remove callbacks. This option only
requires modification to the Xen specific part of Linux.

This is useful to add and remove pci device to Xen hypervisor when
load and remove its driver. For example, when VFs are created by PF,
they will be added to Xen hypervisor, and then can be assigned to guest.

This patch is based on xen-tip-master branch of jeremy's pv-ops tree.
