Re: [Xen-devel] FC-HBA assigned to guest domain does not work.

The hvmloader side is perhaps plausible, since it only changes its behaviour
if qemu exposes an already-configured BAR. Fair enough. I don't think that
blanket always-use-physical-BAR-address is a great idea in qemu -- perhaps
if it could be configurable that would be okay.
