Does anyone know if it is possible to give a guest domain access to character
device hardware such as a SCSI tape drive (/dev/st0 | /dev/nst0)?  I have
recompiled the guest xenU kernel with hardware access and declared the pci SCSI
card in the config file directive as follows:
pci      = [ '4,3,0' ]

The log file when started reports:
[2005-11-01 17:24:57 xend] DEBUG (XendDomainInfo:1178) Creating pci device dom=7
bus=4 dev=3 func=0
