works on XEN 4.2.3 with the "workaround" or not from the pkgsr.

Did someone has successfully passed through / pciback a device in Xen-4.2.3
from the pkgsrc?

from memory I think it works but only for HVM guests

last time i tried with HVM also PV (NetBSD6.1.3/4-amd64) and also some additional patches but i did not get PCI Passthrough to work under NetBSD so i gave up and switched to Linux. I really like to see a up-to-date Version for NetBSD .. I think , sorry to say, but XEN on NetBSD is not usefull at the moment (for me and maybe many others) without "Up-To-Date" and working PCI Passthrough, i was spending more then 2 month to get XEN-4.4.0 working under NetBSD but i run out of time now. XEN is a really good pice of Software but it needs more Support under NetBSD, if i had the knoweledge i would do keep the package "up-to-date" but i dont have the knowledge.
