I can see this making more sense for nested virt, still it's going to
require a non-trivial amount of work to make SR-IOV safe for DomUs to
manage, not to mention that DomUs would then be able to make pci
devices (VFs) appear and disappear, and likely collide with existing

In any case, I can see about pausing the vcpu and resuming after the
timeout, doesn't seem that complex.

Thanks, Roger.
