I don't see any particular reason not to have it in the hypervisor. The only
other possibly sensible place would be dom0 kernel, probably in pciback. It
would actually be fairly sensible to have pciback as the place for PCI setup
and control for passed-thru devices, for both PV and HVM guests.

Just because it's in Xen doesn't mean it has to be vt-d specific either.
There needs to be code sharing between vt-d, pacifica and the 1:1 nativedom
