Re: [Xen-users] Patches fail - why ?


take the patches from git, stable-4.10
$git checkout stable-4.10
$git log --oneline RELEASE-4.10.1..c2b84e7cc4dca

that commit is the last of the XSA-263 patchset, but note that none of the XSA-263 patches identify as an XSA in their description.

I believe that command will give 35 lines. Then you can use `git format-patch` to export all.
