Should this work ?

hg clone -r 3.3.1-rc4 http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.3-testing.hg
cd xen-3.3-testing.hg
make tools # necessary to pull ioemu-remote
cd tools/ioemu-remote
patch -p1 -i /usr/src/qemu-pci-disable.patch
make clean
cd ../../
make clean
make tools
make install-tools

I removed the last chunk of the patch which changes vl.c as the
changes are in 3.3.1-rc4.

In my vista hvm the Intel IDE and Realtek NIC are still visible, and
cdrom is XEN PV not ioemu/qemu.
