However, the guest OS was Linux, not Windows. However, once IOMMU
is fully supported, my understanding is that device drivers do not any more
need to be "xen-aware" and thus the standard windows nvidia driver should
work with pciback. However, I still would prefer a solution where a single
card is shared amongst the host and the guest OS, i.e. like with VirtualBox
(however, 3D support in VirtualBox is pretty slow and unstable, right now,
but I guess it will improve over time).
