You can view the current XenServer patch queue at:


There are only two things I would recommend taking but they're not ready

1. Fix for high MMIO regions.


These require more testing.

2. Preemptible privcmd hypercalls.

The current set of patches is broken and the fixed version is not ready yet.

I also note two fixes for 32-bit guests were not tagged for stable. I
have now asked for these to be added to the stable trees.  These are:

0160676bba69523e8b0ac83f306cce7d342ed7c8 (xen/p2m: check MFN is in range
before using the m2p table)

7cde9b27e7b3a2e09d647bb4f6d94e842698d2d5 (xen: Fix possible user space
selector corruption)
