Yes. To make testing easier:
I removed everything from loader.conf and I removed a few drivers(bge 
and a few others) that were built-in the kernel, so the host kernel 
won't use them

and now I am testing with kenv and loading and unloading vmm.ko. I 
always see the correct ppt devices in the dmesg when vmm.ko is loaded.

Everything seems ok here as well, I get nothing but the ppt devices.

One thing I noticed and seems different is this:
> ppt0 mem 0xb3430000-0xb343ffff,0xb3440000-0xb344ffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci2
> ppt1 mem 0xb3400000-0xb340ffff irq 17 at device 0.1 on pci2

> ppt3 mem 0xb3420000-0xb342ffff irq 17 at device 0.3 on pci2

so ppt0 (the bge device) has two mem ranges...

Another thing I should mention is that "acpidump -t | grep DMAR"
reports nothing. It is mentioned in the documentation but I didn't see 
until now.
