On Centos5.x the pciback driver is a module rather than built into the
kernel, therefore you can't use pciback.hide on the kernel command

However you can manually bind the devices to pciback after the dom0 is
booted, then pass them to the domU e.g.

modprobe pciback passthrough=1

SLOTS=(0000:09:00.0 0000:09:01.0 0000:09:03.0)
for i in ${SLOTS[@]}; do
  echo -n $i > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pciback/new_slot
  echo -n $i > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pciback/bind

xm pci-list-assignable-devices

and then in your domU.cfg
pci = [ '09:00.0', '09:01.0', '09:03.0']

(I might be slightly mixing my Centos5.x and Fedora16 syntax above,
poke me if you can't get it working)
