Did you want me to apply that .diff to the current qemu-xen-unstable ?
If so could you please post it to the list (with an appropriate
Signed-off-by section which should probably include the original
authorship trail ?

Or should I pick up Steven Smith's patch ?

Alternatively I'm happy to wait, but current unstable is what will
become 3.4 and if you're happy with the interface and the code I'm
happy to do so right away.
