Can you provide more detailed information? See for example a recent
post on PCI Passthrough and/or search xen.markmail.org for PCI
Passthrough and IOMMU.

Did it work before? You are implying that some change made it not
work. If you have evidence that is the case, the devel list is the
place to let them know and they can try to walk you through what
changed and try to solve it that way.

Hope that helps,
