I'm not sure what the correct procedure is for requesting these so I hope it is ok to post here.
Xen is currently using the 1.6.3-stable branch of SeaBIOS, our users have requested a backport of two commits (related to building on NetBSD IIRC): 97f1ffcfac4ca382b5008a7aabfc2c300131f978 Add PYTHON definition to Makefile. 805ede2bd35243a4298bc64bd81be6db7cf57f58 Permit .rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__. sections in roms.
Would it be possible to backport those two?
I actually already backported these to our own 1.6.3-stable-xen branch but belatedly thought I should inquire about the possibility of an upstream backport -- it would be much preferable to keep the divergence between 1.6.3-stable and -xen to a minimum.
If you are happy to backport then you could (if you wanted) pull directly from the Xen branch: The following changes since commit 80d11e8577bf03e98f2eb1b0cb3a281ab2879c9e:
Update version to 184.108.40.206 (2011-11-24 12:02:03 -0500)
are available in the git repository at: git://xenbits.xen.org/seabios.git 1.6.3-stable-xen
Kevin O'Connor (2): Add PYTHON definition to Makefile. Permit .rodata.__PRETTY_FUNCTION__. sections in roms.
