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
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:
