SR-IOV is a host technology, not a hypervisor one.

What hypervisor should support is VT-d, then SR-IOV gets supported
automatically.

There were few commits in the VBox source tree with regards to VT-d
support, but it looks like very early status.
In Addition, Hardware is too scarse to test it for community members to help.
