One more thing: All my testing was done on Linux Mint / Ubuntu and I
can't really tell if this is a Ubuntu specific issue. If others have
used the AMD 7770 or AMD 6450 cards for VGA passthrough and had more
success with Xen 4.2 or Xen 4.3, I would be interested to hear.

As I mentioned before, I used a 7970 and a 6450/7450. Works fine on
the first domU boot, but rebooting the domU either:
1) Loses the GPU and falls back on VNC
2) BSODs the domU
3) Crashes the dom0 hard

This is with Xen 4.3.0, Kernel 3.9.9, and XP64 domU.
