Upstream qemu-xen is available in xen-unstable alongside the
"traditional" qemu-xen-traditional DM. Trad remains the default but we
hope to switch in Xen 4.3.

In the meantime if you run xen-unstable with the xl toolstack you can
        device_model_version = "qemu-xen"
in your configuration to select the upstream qemu.

Currently upstream qemu is missing a couple of features, specifically
save restore and pci passthrough. Patches for both have been posted to
qemu-devel but they have not yet been applied. I think the lack of pci
passthrough means no graphics passthrough.
