I added James Harper to CC, I know he has a port of at least scsiback aswell,
and he has a PVSCSI frontend driver included in the GPLPV Windows Xen PV 

Btw do these patches also include the "latest" PVSCSI fixes/enhancements done 
in the SuSe/SLES kernel?
(for example the RESERVE/RELEASE support).
