In the end this may be a secondary issue. Namely looking at the more complete
log in your resent mail we see a DMA fault before even starting Dom0.

i.e. the fault address is pretty close the RMRRs, which suggests an issue 
being the subject of an in progress patch series by Elena (firmware failing to 
all exclusion regions via RMRRs).

The faults during guest startup may - as Yang also said - indicate a deeper 
due to the addresses being clearly out of range. Since you don't seem to be 
through 0000:00:02.0 (the graphics card), it ought to be Dom0 that mis-programs
something, but oddly enough only when a guest is being started. The fact that 
majority of the fault instances show the same offending address seems to support
this (or something getting corrupted in the process of creating the guest).

I'm also being puzzled/worried by the "Fault Overflow" logged on each fault. 
I'd have
to check whether the code fails to properly clear that state on its first
