Re: [Xen-devel] Looking for xen-blkback patch for 2.6.39 kernel


Cheers for asking it forced me to re-look at git and I discovered a command to 
list all the branches. Have since checked out 
'remotes/origin/stable/xen-blkback-v3.3' and seems to be doing the trick.

This however contains the whole kernel rather than just a patch against 2.6.39. 
I had envisaged the patch being a .patch file applied with the linux patch 
utility but maybe I'm thinking of it all wrong. Would I be obtaining a .patch 
file or would it be using git to create patches for use against kernel upstream
