Does Xen3 support creation of a pci back end for a PCI express bus?
I have tried to create domUs on a machine with PCI express but during
the creation it says "System does not support PCI".
Is there any special config/bridge to make PCI express work under xen?
Also, PCI express works under dom0 and this is the lspci command output in dom0:
