I almost applied it, but then I started to wonder: enabling autorepeat
in guest kernel means that autorepeat settings might differ between the
VNC client and the guest. Maybe the better fix would be to actually
assume that backend/client does not send duplicate events, but
autorepeat events, and do the following in xenkbd_handle_key_event():

static void xenkbd_handle_key_event(struct xenkbd_info *info,
struct xenkbd_key *key)
{
struct input_dev *dev;
int value = key->pressed;

if (test_bit(key->keycode, info->ptr->keybit)) {
dev = info->ptr;
} else if (test_bit(key->keycode, info->kbd->keybit)) {
dev = info->kbd;
/* See if the key is already pressed */
if (test_bit(key->keycode, info->kbd->key))
value = 2; /* Report autorepeat */
} else {
pr_warn("unhandled keycode 0x%x\n", key->keycode);
return;
}

input_event(dev, EV_KEY, key->keycode, value);
input_sync(dev);
}

Thanks.
