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.



Yes, fail because is applied after vga none patch that modified neighboring lines.
Apply vga none before and qxl patch after should make both applicable without conflict.
Should not cause problems because both have already been reviewed by the libxl/qemu maintainers and improved following their advices.
