I'm have a system on which I have vt-d passthrough enabled. The system and the passthrough feature works ok. However there are some messages in the log at startup which indicate a problem of some kind. I prints out a fault overflow (see snippet below).

Anybody know the cause and or impact of this messages?

openSUSE 11.1 64bit
xen : 3.3.1_18546_06-1.5 (other versions give the same messages)
mobo: intel dq45cb (latest firmware)
