A script to build XNU version xnu-6153.141.1 (macOS Catalina 10.15.6), based on Scott Knight's script
#! /bin/bash
# tested with Xcode 11.7 on macOS 11
# Changes:
# update to 10.15.6's kernel
# specify an Xcode
# force host OS version to 10.15 so Xcode's clang doesn't complain
# based on
# Scott Knight
# Based on the script by Brandon Azad
# A script showing how to build XNU version 6153.11.26 on macOS Catalina
# 10.15 with Xcode 11.13.1.
# Note: This process will OVERWRITE files in Xcode's MacOSX10.15.sdk. Make a
# backup of this directory first! Or set BACKUP_SDK=1
# Set the working directory.
# Set a permissive umask just in case.
