I tried activating pci passthru on a bhyve arch-linux vm. Sadly as soon as I try to attach a pci device I can't start the vm anymore.

ps shows it seems to be stuck at acpidump -t which seems strange to me:
Code:
# ps aud
USER       PID  %CPU %MEM     VSZ     RSS TT  STAT STARTED    TIME COMMAND
...

Indeed, when I run acpidump -t it never returns:
Code:

12.2-RELEASE-p2 running on an Supermicro A2SDi-4C-HLN4F latest BIOS.

Sadly I have no idea how to continue to debug this so any help would be welcome :) Thank you

Did you exclude the device on the host by setting pptdevs in /boot/loader.conf?

It was setup as described in the wiki, my PCI device is available according to:
Code:
# vm passthru
DEVICE     BHYVE ID     READY        DESCRIPTION
...
ppt0       0/21/0       Yes          Atom Processor C3000 Series USB 3.0 xHCI Controller
...
and was hidden to the host.

I peeked into vm-tools and it's possible to disable the hardware check with vm_disable_host_checks="YES". With this flag set the bhyve vm is starting with pci passthru working!

So it's not bhyve related at all, it only manifests via bhyve's vm-tools because the script tries to check the hardware features via acpidump which seems broken somehow?
