Moving PCI emulation inside of Xen

Reasons and implementation of a PCI emulation layer inside of Xen

The talk will explain the reasons of the ongoing work to add PCI emulation support inside of Xen. This purpose of the PCI emulation layer is to allow passthrough of PCI devices from Xen to guests without involving a third entity in the system (so far this was done using QEMU). This should allow transparent PCI passthrough to guests without requiring a QEMU device model.
