Yes. My bad. It's a function that appears to have been introduced
sometime after 3.0.3 (which is around the level of the patches on the
Debian kernels).

I figured it out though. bind_interdomain_evtchn_to_irqhandler appears
to just be a helper function that does a EVTCHNOP_bind_interdomain
followed by a bind_evtchn_to_irqhandler.

The scsi passthrough backend now works against the Debian kernels (I
just compiled it out of tree) and I have written a windows PV frontend
driver for it - my tape drive is identified by windows, although if I
try a firmware upgrade on it it gets a bit upset, and I'm at a different
location to the tape drive so I can't put a tape in to test further.
