Unfortunately, Ian Jackson (who will continue to maintain his qemu
tree) is away this week.

I have not had a precise look at e.g. the xenfb.c code, but if what Gerd
has submitted is exactly the same as xen-unstable's, then that part is
already merged :)

As for the rest, as Gerd said Ian is maintaining a rebased tree, which
is currently used by default in the upcoming xen 4.0 (aka 3.3).  He
won't rebase it until that release, but after that he will probably
regularly, with much less pain than previously anyway since we now have
a fine git tree.
