Crashing dom0 is certainly a bug.  If there's any chance you could get
a serial log of the dom0 crash, I'm sure we'd appreciate it.

In your description you only talk about re-attaching a PCI device, but
you don't say what happens if you hot-plug it without having first
attached it to the guest: that is, if you boot the host, boot the
guest, then do "xl pci-attach".

It's significant because if it works before the card has ever been
attached, but not after, then there may be some issue with the FLR
(function-level reset), which is supposed to set the card back into
the state it started in at boot
