I'm attempting to hand control of one usb controller, videocard, and audio
to a domU.

First, some info.  I'm running Debian Etch 4.0r1 with the 2.6.18-5-xen-686
kernel (xen 3.1.0) for both dom0 and domU.

I've added pciback.hide=(01:00.0)(00:01.0)(00:1f.2)(00:1f.4)(00:1f.5) to my
kernel boot line.
(they are in order, nvidia nv11ddr (gf2mx), agp bridge, usb contoller, usb
controller, intel ac97 audio).

I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate message, I had some issues
with my mail client.

All of these are handed to the domU

I then added -sharevts vt1 to all of the X command lines in

X and gdm start perfectly!

But. Xorg uses 99+% of the cpu, all the time.  It's completely unusable.

I've tried installing the nvidia binary driver, but that turned into an
abortion and I moved back to the generic driver.

Any ideas?

I'll post any relevant logs on request, because I'd love to have this
working fully (and I'm sure a lot of other people would too).
