Re: [Xen-users] Nvidia Passthrough and PCIe Bridge Hell

For those of you who have been following the developments

Summary - remove resistor for 3rd device ID nibble,
modify 2 bytes in the UEFI strap, and you are good
to go.

This reduces the complexity of the originaly hardware
mod by at least 4x, at the expense of a small BIOS

Unfortunately, since I am already in PCIe bridge hell
due to all of my PCIe slots being behind the broken
Nvidia NF200 bridges, the extra layers of bridging
on a GTX690 make it unworkable with my motherboard,
so if anybody is interested in a new, gridified
GTX690, drop me an email off-list.

Just reading through this, and some of the other threads on this topic, I had a random idea and just wondered if it was feasible; would be possible to translate/change the reported PCI Device ID at the QEMU/Passthrough layer?
