Interesting! I knew it existed, but I've never seen hardware that
actually had multiple domains.

Huh. I would have figured it would be stopped by libvirt first, as
libvirt's PCI address parsing currently rejects anything with domain or
bus that isn't 0. That doesn't sound like a libvirt error message
though, which implies that, at least for host-side PCI addresses,
libvirt is doing the right thing, and the error is coming back from kvm.

A few questions:

1) What is your Linux distro and version
2) what version of qemu/kvm do you have
3) what version of libvirt?
4) Does libvirt actually get to the point of running qemu or kvm command?
5) If the answer to (4) is "yes", can you send the qemu command that is
generated (it will be at the end of /var/log/libvirt/qemu/${guestname}.log)
