But that's not the question.

If someone has a box that works for whatever graphics they want, then
running it as a dom0 instead of bare is a reasonable thing to do.  That
enables also running a domU.  Right now this is not feasible for some
because of the agp bug (and harder for those that don't have the bug,
because of the workaround), and it's suboptimal due to not having SMP.

That's good to know; would be good to drop that in the PR (just the
versions of xen and netbsd).

I saw your commit - it would be nice to leave the agp line in, commented
out, and have a comment with the PR.  While we've been getting "booting
with agp fails" reports, I suspect we'll now get "agp doesn't attach"
reports from some subset of the currently-uncounted multitudes who are
running the XEN3_DOM0 kernel without running into this bug.
