I got the SMBus pass-through to my guest and I don't see any problems yet.
I am still curious to understand what kind of problem I expect to observe.

AFAIK Qemu is designed to pass-through all the sub-functions of a
given device only if function '0' of that device is passed through.
Which is targeting to multi-function devices.
where as if one want to pass-through a specific sub-function on a
bridge it won't happen coz qemu or xl are not handling it.

BTW: I cleaned up the top post mess and also did some reading on
etiquette and will be practicing that.
