They are mostly copypasta, yes.  Reusing them directly is a little
difficult because the current implementation includes xfree86 headers,
so "reusing the current files" would be:

1) detach hw/xfree86/common/xf86vmode.c from xfree86 headers
2) move it up to Xext/, (probably as a separate module and not glommed
into libXext.la)
3) add backend to hw/xwayland

Alternatively, we could do a generic translation layer from vidmode to
randr, but that's probably a bit more involved.
