Hi xen-users,

I am trying to hide an ethernet nic and have it exclusively available
to the domU virtual machine.
The pciback module is clearly available in the kernel/romdisk and i
have passed the parameters to the kernel to ignore the pci-id.
But I continue to see it listed when i run "lspci".

Have i missed any steps, appreciate if  you kind give me any pointers
on how to check if i'm doing the right steps and move forward.


lsmod | grep pciback
