If the device doesn’t support FLR capability, there will be a default reset for it, e.g. Dstate transition. But it doesn’t guarantee to work. For your ATI card, we didn’t try with it. Likely it cannot work. nVidia Quadro FX 3800 and IGD on Intel platforms (e.g. Q35 and Q45) were tested and works on current Xen upstream. Some other gfx cards  may work with extra patches (e.g. 1:1 map vBAR and pBAR). There were many emails to discuss it in xen-devel mailing list, you’d better to find and read those emails.

My VGA hardware is as following. Can I find a patch to make it support pci passthrough? 

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3450

Xen4.0 can not support the ATI adapters defaultly, is it? Because my VGA passthrough can not work correctly.

There were several patches checked into xen for pci passthru, you can find relevant code in tools/python/xen/xend/server/pciif.py.
