I think the commit message of the xen.git commit should explain what
options are supported by which versions of qemu (including qemu
upstream's future plans).

That would provide (a) something which summarises the communication
etc. with qemu upstream and can be checked with them if necessary and
(b) something against which the libxl changes can be easily judged.
