I think what he wants to do though is assign 1 each of the 4 PCI devs to
seperate VM's as in
First VM: 4/0/1
Second VM: 4/0/2
Third VM; 4/0/3
Forth VM: 4/0/4

I do not know if this well or well not work.  

It might work if the 4 devices appear behind a bridge chip and are not
subdevs but are actual full devies of there own as in:
first vm: 4/0/1
second vm: 5/0/1
third vm: 6/0/1
forth vm: 7/0/1

I have hardware of this later type I could test with, though it is PCI,
and 10/100, so may present other issues (BAR size/alignment.)
