BTW, along with the "official" patch comes an "official" json file
telling you exactly where we applied the patch.  If you look at
xsa263.meta, inside 'Recipes', you'll see this stanza:

    "4.10": {
      "Recipes": {
        "xen": {
          "StableRef": "a0355180b660b149f8054b9facdd9cac8ec86a95",
          "Prereqs": [],
          "Patches": [

This means that for 4.10, take xen.git commit hash
a0355180b660b149f8054b9facdd9cac8ec86a95 (which is from the stable
branch around the time of the public release), and run "git am
xsa263-4.10/*.patch" to get an up-to-date tree.
