Re: [Xen-devel] [Query] Flow of PCI device dedicated to a domU

I am currently trying writing my own PCI front to access directly a
PCI device from my PV guest.

If I read this correctly you are saying that the MMIO region is
already mapped into my domain by xl? So when I go and read the BAR
register from the PCI configuration I can just go and access it
directly or do I have to update the VA mapping?

Best regards,
