We are the XCP-ng project (https://xcp-ng.org) and want to distribute
our own PV-Tools (maybe also per windows updates) so we need an extra range.
Thanks.  I acked your previous message which was sent by private
email; I think you could have transferred my ack to this repost.

I just wanted to say that it is a very good thing to come here and
reserve a number.  We should assign numbers without too much
quibbling, which is why I have given a summary ack.

IMO this should be committed soon.

We also registered a PCI-Device:

"XCP-ng Project PCI Device for Windows Update" ->
You've got your own PCI device *and* a range in the Xen Platform PCI
Device ?  I confess I don't know why that is necessary.  Perhaps it is
more obvious to those who understand this all better than I do.
It was recommended by Paul Durrant: https://lists.xenproject.org/archives/html/win-pv-devel/2018-10/msg00005.html

"I think it would probably be better if you took a range. It's not in writing but I think other things have played with those low numbered device ids in the past so probably best to avoid them. Would you be ok with the next range of 0x100 above XenClient, i.e. 0xc200-0xc2ff? ...."
