Re: [Xen-devel] Non-page aligned MMIO BAR error on dom-0 on Xen HVM setup

Hi Keir,
Thanks for the response. Yes I wanted to do it while the guest is running. I wanted to see if a FLR on dom-0 stops any data traffic from guest OS or not. I also wanted to see whether the device gets operational on guest OS after an interface down (ifconfig down) or reload of the driver in worst-case.

Why would you do that? Do you do it while the guest is running and owns the
