If the kernel presents PCI express devices to user space in the same way
as it presents traditional PCI devices, then the answer is yes - PCI
device passthrough in both cases is a matter of using kernel passthrough
to let the qemu user space process control that device, so that the
guest OS in turn can manage the device as it would in a bare metal
situation.
