I'm not sure. I think they are probably Stevens patches from before they
were merged into xen-unstable.

There is a README in the unmodified_drivers subdirectory which explains
what you need to do. 

It is basically the same as for building any out of tree driver:
        cd unmodified_drivers/linux-2.6
        sh mkbuildtree i386
        make -C /path/to/kernel/source M=$(pwd) modules modules_install

The kernel source is usually pointed to by /lib/modules/$(uname
-r)/build if you have the relevant kernel-headers package installed or
if you built the kernel yourself.
