Again, there's a difference.  The interface between Linux and Xen has
always been meant to be a "public" thing.  The interface between ioemu
and the other xen components has not, and changing it is considered fine
(we still do it).  Sure that could be cleaned up, but that's probably
not something that should happen on the upstream qemu side.
