Hi Jason,

The PCI Backend does not currently support exporting a PCI bridge device
(or a Cardbus bridge). There is some code in there for it, but it is not
yet complete. Another problem that you may have is that there is not yet
a way to notify the frontend (in your driver domain) that a device has
been added or removed (i.e. hotplug is not supported yet).
Unfortunately, I don't think I can offer you much help in getting this
working as I've not yet tested the code myself with any pcmcia or
cardbus devices.
