I can come up with a patch for that, might take some days though as
I'm busy with some non-xen stuff at the moment.

This should happen when xenbus is implemented -- it can create a virtual bus in sysfs and then virtual device info and parameters can hang off of that. I think someone from Redhat (possibly Jeremy Katz) was going to look into implementing xenbus.

For the time being I don't see any reason for them not to hang out in /proc. We probably want xenbus before going into mainline anyway.
