The amd64 port does not currently support the pciback device.

A separate PR requests multiboot support for amd64.  Together with pciback 
support, an amd64 xen dom0 could be used for painless driver development in 
domU instances.

I'm happy to help with the dev. work on this, though I will likely need quite a 
bit of guidance.
