I thought Waldi sent patches for most of hte other backends ages ago and
this stuff just works these days.

Yes, here we are:

    xen: Add module alias to autoload backend drivers
    All the Xen backend drivers are assigned to a special bus type
    xen-backend. This patch exports xen-backend:* names through modalias and
    uevent to autoload them.

Seems to have been in 3.1-rc1.

Maybe there are other driver which this didn't affect, evtchn etc
perhaps? I wonder if it is worth init time Xen code synthesising some
uevents iff running on Xen to make these get loaded...
