... actually I don't need to pick between the two until this actually
happens. When it does happen I'll play with the second option and
determine if I am capable of not making a mess of it etc.

For now I have cherry-picked the upstream fix onto a new branch
"1.6.3-stable-xen" and pushed that branch to our repo. I have also
updated the "xen-unstable" branch (the default branch) with the same.

IanJ -- when you are ready to push the xen-unstable.hg side please
include an update of SEABIOS_UPSTREAM_TAG to
002d30b5f4f48ee203be3bad9d68dc8b538ee35b (instead of rel- as it
is currently).
