See section 7.3 of the Xen User's Manual explains how to give an
unprivilidged domain access to a pci device. Also you need to use the
physdev_dom0_hide argument on the xen.gz kernel line in the grub menu to
prevent dom0 from seeing the device.=20

do you have any documentation on how to export physical devices to other
domains than dom0 ? I didn't find this in the xen manuals ...
