Looks like I have some problem with grub passing the arguments
correctly.  I see them properly when I view the "dmesg" output, but
when modprobe tries to load the xen-pciback module, it claims invalid
argument 0) ... like the rest of the line has been lost or something.
I tried single and doubel quotes, and with / without the extra 0's.
I've gone back to dynamic unbinding via script and I'll wait for 4.2
to come along :)

Thanks a bunch for the help.
