As part of Google Summer of Code we are in the process to add Block PV-drivers to Seabios, in order to this, first we have to be able to communicate with xenstore so we can exchange information before the front and back ends connect. To communicate with xenstore we need to make seabios Xen-friendly so support for hypercalls has been added to Seabios. In the next month, Seabios will become a front-end for the block devices, connecting to dom0 back-end block device when used with Xen.
It looks to me like this patch series adds capabilities that a later patch series will use. The patch series itself looks okay to me (though, I do find the multiple copyright statements in the middle of xen.h confusing). However, I'd like to see the code with the end results before committing the framework code.
