How does it compare to just using the SCSI HBA support that got checked
in a few days ago (in the qemu-dm 0.9.0 upgrade)?

If we're going to add support for enabling buffering of ioport accesses
beyond what we currently special case for the VGA it should be via a
generic interface used by qemu to register sets of ports with xen and
configure how they will be handled.
