There are similar conversion macros in the VGA code.  I don't know how
practical it would be to reuse them but it's at least worth looking at.
We created a file hw/pixel_ops.h to share code between vga.c and tcx.c,
probably it can be extended to serve Xen as well.

Uhm, well, it isn't that easy.  Unifying that looks like a big job in
itself.  pixel_ops.h as-is isn't very helpful for xen-framebuffer.  The
xen-framebuffer macro isn't very useful to others.

Okay, the xen-framebuffer macros aren't that big so it's not a huge deal. Was worth looking into though. Thanks!

What IMHO would be most useful is a set of generic conversion functions,
operating on scanline level, much like the ones created by
vga_template.h, but without dependencies on vga.c internals.
