With the whole serie currently on gitlab we have extensively tested passing
through PCI devices on Arm in several configuration (number of device, MSI,
MSI-X) and check that PCI was still functional on x86.

With the patches pushed to Xen right now it was checked that:
- xen compiles properly on arm32, arm64 and x86
- xen compiles properly with VPCI activated (using a patch) on arm32 and arm64
- xen on x86 is functionnal (using basic test on QEMU)
- xen on arm64 is functionnal (with some extensive tests on different targets)

We are only lacking some actual testing on arm32 internally.
