I've backported them to 3.1 / QEMU 0.8.2 for the Fedora 8, test2 release but 
it was not exactly pretty. There've been a fair few changes to QEMU & its VNC
server between 0.8.2 and 0.9.0, plus the various Xen specific patches, so I had
to pull in a fair number of other changes first. If there's interest I can
send out the patches against 3.1, but otherwise I'll just focus on the 
xen-unstable tree.
