Tried your patches on Guest machine, it did not help. I am attaching
the messages from guest machine.

Looking into the qemu-kvm code to find more information about DMA.

It is the default configuration. I did not pass swiotlb parameter on
kernel boot line.
The host kernel is booted with iommu=1.

root at prasad-kvm:~/VMDisks# qemu-system-x86_64 -hda
Ubuntu-10.10-amd64.img -m 1024M -device pci-assign,host=02:00.0
I am passing 1GB memory to the guest machine.
I have 2 graphics cards (Nvidia and ATI) attached to my system. The
Nvidia graphics card is used by host machine and I am trying to assign
the ATI graphics card to the Guest machine.
When I unbind the ATI graphics card from the host machine I see these
messages on the host machine

Thanks a lot for helping me out.
