Hello All,

Can anyone explain Xen's PCI Backend Mode? A quick glance over the wiki and my favorite references didn't help.

I'm building a custom Xen (4.1), and a bit stumped about what I should select for the PCI Backend driver and mode.

The three options are:
1. Virtual PCI
2. Passthrough
3. Slot

For a bit of context, I'm attempting to configure xen to support a network device-driver domain. The device driver domain will contain the network backend for an HVM domU.
