Have you tried passing the video card to the VM without enabling gfx_passthru?  
I have found passing the video card as a secondary video device works well and 
seems to be supported on more hardware.

I have also passed through my AMD Radeon HD 6450 as a secondary display adapter with gfx_passthru=0.

As a result, I've begun to compile from source, but xen git master results in
the fallowing error message:

    The kernel doesn't support reset from sysfs for PCI device

I see this message too, but everything works as expected.

Agreed. As explained in my previous email to the list, I see this message as well and everything works as expected.
