[Xen-devel] [PATCH 1/5] xen-pcifront: Update warning comment to use 'e820_host' option.

With Xen changeset 23428 "libxl: Add 'e820_host' option to config file"
the E820 as seen from the host can now be passed into the guest.
This means that a PV guest can now:
 - Use the correct PCI I/O gap. Before these patches, Linux guest would
   boot up and would tell:
   [    0.000000] Allocating PCI resources starting at 40000000 (gap: 
   while in actuality the PCI I/O gap should have been:
   [    0.000000] Allocating PCI resources starting at b0000000 (gap: 

 - The PV domain with PCI devices was limited to 3GB. It now can be booted
   with 4GB, 8GB, or whatever number you want. The PCI devices will now _not_ 
   with System RAM. Meaning the drivers can load.
