1) 4.15.0-1 adds zstd kernel support, so the hook for that is no longer needed, but I'm not sure if ever made it out of my personal repo.

2) The -no-pie problem in linking is present in 4.15, and there's an included patch for that. It is now the only patch needed to compile cleanly on Arch.

3) As promised, stubdom has moved from building by default to not building by default, as no one has spoken up about using it. If I continue maintaining the package, the plan is to remove it in the next major release.

4) I haven't done anything about the SDL2 deps.

5) Unless a co-maintainer is added, this is likely going to be the last release for a few months as I'm going in for surgery to have a brain tumor removed next month.

I could've sworn this was fixed months ago, but the compile options are wrong.

    --enable-ovmf \
    --with-system-ovmf \
    --with-system-seabios=/usr/share/qemu/bios-256k.bin \

Notice the --with-system-ovmf doesn't have a path. So Xen tries to access the file yes when looking for an EFI bios.

@mbroemme: Sure. But I can restart the machine only tomorrow.

@jsteel: I've fixed the dependencies and aligned them between qemu-xen and qemu-xen-traditional.

@ianu/@dhlk: Fixed it as well and also applied and enabled all patches up to XSA-256.

@baratharon: Could you please retry with latest PKGBUILD from AUR?

This change should fix it

Looks like the checksum on xsa254-diff-release410-comet1.1.patch is incorrect.

Today I upgraded from 4.8 to 4.10, and I got this (no more information is available, so I don't know what should I do; also, google has no any usable info):
