[Fedora-xen] PCI passthrough

I have an F8 dom0 (which could become a CentOS 5.2 dom0 if that would
make anything easier) I'd like an F9 domU to have access to a PCI DVB
tuner for a mythtv backend.

I understand that I need to add "pciback.hide=(XX:YY.Z)" and possibly
"pciback.permissive" to grub.conf for the dom0

How should I add the details of the corresponding "pci = ['XX:YY.Z']"
to the domU config?

I've looked in the documentation of the XML format at
but can't see relevant tags.
