Virtualization issue

Hey guys , i have the following problem when trying to use pci-passthrough/vt-d with hardware that i have confirmed works with another distro and custom kernel(debian testing kernel 3.3.3). Being an arch guy i wanted something a bit less bleeding edge and have the intel_iommu/vt-d stuff built in, i have added intel_iommu=on to /etc/default/grub and then updated grub.

However when starting a vm using virt-manager and kvm i get the following error:

Error starting domain: internal error Process exited while reading console log output: char device redirected to /dev/pts/1
No IOMMU found.  Unable to assign device "hostdev0"
qemu-kvm: -device pci-assign,host=00:19.0,id=hostdev0,configfd=22,bus=pci.0,addr=0x3: Device 'pci-assign' could not be initialized
some more info:

grep -e DMAR -e IOMMU

virsh nodedev-dettach pci_0000_00_19_0

Maybe i'm missing something but i did the exact same thing under debian and it worked fine, the hardware is a Thinkpad X220 and i'm trying to passthrough the onboard NIC.
