I have dual intel and quad DEC nics and have not been able to pass single ports despite each port having its own chip and PCI ID. Im not sure why that is, but let me know if you have success.

the only 4eth card i've used was in fact a PCI bridge and 4 eth chips. it appeared as 4 cards on lspci. i guess it would be possible to assign each one to a different domain.
