  * PCI hole resize support hvmloader/qemu-traditional/qemu-upstream with 
PCI/GPU passthrough
    Where Stefano writes:

    1) modify upstream QEMU to start the PCI hole at 0xe0000000, to match
    qemu-xen-unstable in terms of configuration and not to introduce any
    regressions. Do this for the Xen 4.3 release.

    2) for Xen 4.4 rework the two patches above and improve
    i440fx_update_pci_mem_hole: resizing the pci_hole subregion is not
    enough, it also needs to be able to resize the system memory region
    (xen.ram) to make room for the bigger pci_hole

Right -- I'll put it on my list; but given that it needs a new interface into qemu, and work hasn't even begun on that yet, I rather doubt it's going to make it for 4.4, unfortunately. :-(
