I am not very familiar with compiling nor with github, but I did learn
that by adding .patch to your first link, it was possible to get the
changes in a patch file format.  Applying the patch generated these

By inspecting the code, I could tell that there were some missing
patches (VGA interface type none was missing) compared to the RC3 source
that I have.  Would you mind helping with the additional patches that I
need?  Is so, I will try to help with the qxl issue.
