Fedora does not currently replace blktap in their xen-runtime but they provide 
a separate package based on XenServer's blktap 0.9.2 to generate their 
blktap-3.0.0 package.  I raised a bug in this area because the two packages 
cannot co-exist: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1150546

Note also that there is some work ongoing at the moment for which I will push 
for the creation of a new release; that's to enable compilation of the latest 
blktap (actually on branch 'xs64bit' not master) without performance-improving 
grant copy kernel patches which have not yet been upstreamed
