Here's the patch output:

Also xsa253-xsa254-diff-release410-comet1.1.patch is failing. Build succeeds without it.

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?
