You right!!! I forgot this details... Maybe that is because I never used Windows LOL
So, I never needed the HVM domains...

That's correct, but it is possible (and desirable) to load drivers into Windows that use the PV communications channelto talk to the disk/network/etc in Dom0 instead of the emulated qemu PCI devices. This is true under HVM Linux too. HVM also has some other benefits too.

(you would know this obviously, but I just thought I'd add it for the OP's benefit :)
