Excellent! I was already assuming that 9.0 is going to be as broken
with Xen as 8.2.

Unfortunately I do not have the previous Xen setup available any
more. I had it temporarily for evaluating virtualized FreeBSD and
that evaluation ended with a conclusion that something else is a
better solution in that particular case.

However, after reading your patch, the MAC/ioemu/"do something
smart" part of the patch looks good to me. Please go ahead. The
other parts look sensible as well but I am not familiar enough with
the code to really say so.
