Does it mean that if these patchsets make it into 2.6.30 there will be
paravirt_ops dom0 that supports PCI passthrough?

No, those are just the changes necessary to have native device drivers in dom0 work at all. In fact, I'm not proposing any backend device support for mainline in this merge window, so you'll still need some out of tree changes to get a useful system. But these changes do have a fair amount in common with what's needed for pci passthrough, so there is some progress (albeit abstract).
