Thread-topic: collecting info on platforms with VT-d BIOS problems
We would like to collect information on platforms that have problem with VT-d 
PCI device passthrough using non-IGD PCI devices.  Note that IGD (integrated 
display device) device passthrough code is still being worked on.

If you have encountered  VT-d problems on a particular platform using latest 
xen-unstable, please provide the following information so that we can work with 
OEM's to get their BIOS's fixed:

    (a) Platform details (OEM, Product/Model#,  Other identifying info)
    (b) BIOS version/number
    (c) Version of Xen with which failure is seen (if not the latest 
    (d) Specific error/failure details such as serial log
