Qemu PCI pass-through
How to use 'pci pass-through' to run Linux in Qemu accessing real Ath9k adapter
# Boot kernel with 'intel_iommu=on'
# Unbind driver from the device and bind 'pci-stub' to it
echo "168c 0030" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pci-stub/new_id
echo 0000:0b:00.0 > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:0b:00.0/driver/unbind
echo 0000:0b:00.0 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pci-stub/bind
# Then just run
