Re: [Xen-devel] Missing FD0 when using XEN kernel with Linux 2.6.10

We currently don't have support for ISA DMA, which the legacy floppy
driver (as opposed to USB floppy) requires.

We can access floppy drives using PIO, and I modified floppy.h in asm-xen to do this some time ago. So I'm not sure why the OP's controller isn't detected --- adding tracing to drivers/block/floppy.c may help narrow down the problem.
