Do you mean you want these patches backported from our qemu upstream
to the old ("traditional") xen qemu fork ?

I'm the maintainer for the latter but it's very much in the deep
freeze, maintenance wise.  I don't think we're going to add discard
support to it.

If there's something wrong with the io accounting in it I would
consider a backported patch to fix it.
