Hi Tom,

unfortuantely binding devices to pci-back after booting dom0 didn't
help me to reproduce the problem.

I'm wondering if you could run a few tests to try and isolate the problem

1) Try passing through the PCI devices one by one to try and
   see which devices cause the problem that you are seeing and;

2) Do a bisection on the tree - say back to v3.4.1-rc6, to see
   which changeset is causing the problem.
