Yes, there is.
As a matter of fact we package qemu-xen in its own rpm on XCP, called
The qemu-xen XCP tree is available as a patchqueue against CS
284d056851f7 of qemu-xen-unstable.hg here:


you might be interested in the spec file: mk/xen-device-model.spec.in.

However I don't suggest using the qemu-xen XCP tree because the last few
patches in the patchqueue require changes in the toolstack or other
patches in the xen tree available on XCP but not available on plain
unpatched systems.
