After applying the patch, there is three things that goes away:
  - the parallel port
  - an empty cdrom driver, if xl does not ask for one
  - a block device reported by qemu as "sd0"

So, parallel, I suppose that can go away, as it's not usubal (by default
the output go to the graphic output). The "sd0" seems to be an sdcard
slot, but I don't think we can use it from xl. And the last one, the
cdrom driver is also not usubal from xl, if one want to insert a cd into
it, the cdrom driver need to be in the vm config file.

So, I'm happy with the patch:
