I have tried sharing a webcam with an lxd instance and that worked fine.
I guess PCI devices are like that as well.

Unfortunately, lxd is not as good as jails in FreeBSD. On my FreeBSD i
have a single OS base image which is then shared against multiple jails
(containers). In lxd each container needs its own OS image, so the
storage requirement explodes for multiple containers. If there is a way
to share an base OS image amongst multiple containers in LXD I will be
interested to know.
