Thread-topic: Network Interface Options
I see that by default Xen seems to emulate a Realtek 8139 in my hvm's.
I have a quad port Intel PCIe nic available and wondered if I remove the 
network line altogether from the config and pass the nic in will I have near 
native performance without pv drivers?

Also, is it possible to pass in one of each of the 4 ports into 4 different 
hvms? I don't exactly know how the NIC appears to Linux as I haven't used it 
yet in this scenario.
