In the course of working on an XSA I had to finally get PVH Dom0 work on at least one of my systems, in a minimal fashion. This had turned up a number of issues, some of which have since remained pending. Therefore I’d like to gain understanding on whether there is any future to this mode of Dom0 operation, and if so when it can be expected to be better than tech preview or even just experimental.

Open issues off the top of my head: - PCI pass-through / SR-IOV - passing of video settings to Dom0 kernel - serial console (at least when on a plug-in PCI card)
