In that case then these spice settings should be part of
libxl_device_vfb, like the vnc ones are and they should configurable in
xl configuration files as:

        vfb = [ 'spice=1,spiceport=NNN' ]

There should be no need to move the HVM spice parameters to the top
level of the domain configuration. I'm afraid my previous advice was
based on an incorrect understanding of what you were implementing
(derived from the commit message not being clear about what was actually
going on).

Given the lack of clarity shown so far about what this existing patch is
actually doing doing I'm a little concerned about how QXL is going to
fit into the model in the future.
