Hi, Keir & Ian

OK, I understand that my patches are also big. But I'm worried about
one problem for Xen 3.4. The problem is that devices are deassigned
before the reset on current Xen. Dom0 memory may be broken by DMA if
the problem is not fixed.
My patches fix the problem. I mean that devices are deassigned after
the reset with my patches.

I can work on making the patch just changing order of resetting/
deassigning devices if you need the fix for Xen 3.4.
