in "unconventional ways". Those drivers will not work in a
Para-virtualized driver (including Xen Dom0). [And drivers that are
included in the OS may still do things in unconventional ways and
therefore need "fixing" to work with Xen, if these drivers aren't
commonly used in a Xen environment - maybe no-one has tried them in Xen

Do you see any error messages in dmesg or xm dmesg that may be of some
