In your debug output I saw:
(XEN) AMD-Vi: Fail to find iommu for device04:00.0
This means no iommu attached to 04:00.0, so it cannot be assigned to any hvm 
guest. What is this device in your system? An add-on device or on board 
device? It looks like BIOS failed to create an IVRS entry for this device.
