To be honest, even after having read you second mail I'm not quite
clear what it you want and/or what doesn't work. Adding some
guessing, I could interpret the above as you wanting to pass through
the graphics device. If that's the case, then this is quite clearly a
pretty bad idea with the IOMMU behind it disabled.
