This is a vague wishlist item for me, but what would it take to backport
the xen patches to the linux kernel to 2.0 or 2.2?

I ask because I have a client with an ancient SCO application that has
some historic data in it and it might just work under linux with iBCS,
which has long since disappeared.

Failing that, how will a kernel in a VMX domain see hardware? Would the
kernel need specific device drivers?

Would a Linux dom0 and a SCO domU cause a matter-antimatter-like
explosion? :)

Backporting to 2.0/2.2 would not be a simple task. You'd have to run them unmodified in a vmx domain, once that code has stabilised some more.
