  • Thread-topic: enabling pci on other domains

Are there any issues with making a specific piece of hardware (isdn card) available in a domain other than 0? I am tinkering with the kernel driver of an ISDN card and such things are fraught with crashes. A crash in a xen domain would be much easier to recover from (that, and the machine I’m debugging on won’t reboot no matter what kernel options I pass). I realise that a rogue DMA write or something that crashes the pci bus would still bring the system down but it will still be an improvement over what I have now.


What is the procedure for doing this?
