This is a pair of Xen para-virtual frontend device drivers:

Unless they're actually inter-dependent, could you post this as two
separate patches?  I don't know anything about these parts of the
kernel, so it would be nice to make it very obvious which changes are
fb vs mouse/keyboard.

I could do that do that, but the intermediate step (one driver, not
the other) is somewhat problematic: the backend in dom0 needs both
drivers, and will refuse to complete device initialization unless
they're both present.

That's OK.  In that case keep them together.
