As we do not emulate virtual bus topology for Dom0 then it is

clearly seen that the code may only have impact on DomUs.

But anyways, virtual bus topology for DomUs is emulated with

a single segment 0. We have a single list of virtual SBDFs,

again, for virtual segment 0, which maps those virtual SBDFs

to physical SBDFs. So, we go over the list of virtual devices

assigned to that guest and match the virtual SBDF in question to

its counterpart in Dom0. I can't see how this can be optimized or

needs that optimization because of the fact that Dom0 may have

multiple segments...

So, how would that comment look like?
