Hi.
I wrote a small python app that allows you to convert your SNES Virtual Console saves to .SRM format, and vice versa.

Convert your 3DS Save to .SRM:
1) Extract your save files using JKSM.
2) You will get many files in your save folder, but you'll only need the .VES file.
3) Open 3DS SNES Save Converter.
4) Select your .VES file.
5) Click on 'VES to SRM' button.
6) You'll get a .SRM file in the 3ds-snes-sc directory.

Convert your .SRM Save to .VES (3DS):
1) Open 3DS SNES Save Converter.
2) Select your .SRM file.
3) You will now need to write the Game Preset ID. You can get it from here.
Remember not to add 0x to the Game Preset ID.
For example, if you are converting a Super Mario World save, you should only write: 1011 (instead of 0x1011)
4) Click on 'SRM to VES' button.
5) You'll get a .VES file in the 3ds-snes-sc directory, rename it to the product code of the game.
For example, if you are converting an Earthbound save, you should name the file: KTR-UAEE.ves
6) Import your save (a folder with only the .VES file) using JKSM and you should see your progress when booting the game.

3ds-snes-sc was inspired and based on the following posts:

I'm not sure, but you could test and tell us if it works.
Just tested it with A Link to the Past on the Wii U VC, and it worked flawlessly!

EDIT: I also tested the tool with more games on the Wii U VC, and while some of them did work, others didn't.
