Ok, but they do get passed in though? As in, QEMU sees them.
If you boot a Live Ubuntu/Fedora CD within the guest with the PCI

Ugh, that looks like somebody removed a large chunk of a pagetable.

Hmm. Are you using dom0_mem=max parameter? If not, can you try
that and also disable ballooning in the xm/xl config file pls?
