Thank you in advance for any hints.

workaround_bios_bug  and workaround_bogus_bios only works for vtd not amd.
You should have IVRS table build by BIOS to enable amd iommu. It could look
like this:
(XEN) ACPI: IVRS AFE7C1ED, 00C8 (r1  AMD     RD890S  6040000 AMD         0)

Thanks a lot for your hints Wei.

All ACPI entries I see in "xm dmesg" are only like below. I didn't find any IVRS entry

It looks like HP DL385g7 BIOS doesn't offer such IVRS table. Maybe there is a kind of workaround to use the IOMMU support (890FX chipset / 6176SE CPUs support it) as it is required for "passing through" PCI devices to domu domains.

I have tested xen enabled kernels 2.6.32-5, 2.6.39-2 and 3.0.0-rc7 (with aufs support)

I will upload today the last test xen live iso image (s. below) for downloads.

Please take a look for details at: http://www.it-infrastrukturen.com/fileadmin/linux/debian-live-xen/README.xen

In the (selfmade) used kernel 3.0.0-rc7 packages I have activated IOMMU-debugging however I have to look for a debug howto.

Thank you in advance for your time.
