I personally don't fancy the fact that MSI-X handling for pass-through
to HVM guests is split between QEMU and the hypervisor itself. It
makes tracking down bugs or just trying to figure out the code flow
quite complex IMO.
I have plans to switch HVM to use the pass-through code being added
But that's still quite far away from being usable by unprivileged
