Hmm, dunno how to do that best, git-format-patch seems to lack an
equivalent of "diff -b" ...

To stay closer to upstream?  Upstream xen_machine_pv.c will in the
future also have some bits to handle xen emulation which will never be
actually used when running on the xen hypervisor.  You don't really need
that.  But I think using the same source code it is a good idea
nevertheless, it will be less maintainance work long-term.

I'd prefer to not have a patch backlog with tons of unmerged stuff ...
