Upcoming upstream Linux 3.1 will include xen-pciback driver.

options until that:
- download git tree/branch on your buildserver and just copy the binaries to 
other servers.
- or download the git branch and create a xen diff (patch) against vanilla 
kernel, and copy only the patch to other servers.
- use some kernel that's shipped as binary with pciback included.
