Hello yesterday i upgrade successful my kernel to 5.3.7. Today trying to build the same kernel in a VM there is no genpatches-5.3-9.base.tar.xz here:
https://dev.gentoo.org/~mpagano/genpatches/tarballs/
Any suggestion about how to copy genpatches-5.3-9.base.tar.xz from my file system to Virtual Machine???

It depends on which software you use for the virtual machine: VirtualBox? QEMU/KVM? Something else?

VirtualBox handles shared folders internally, and should be pretty easy to use.

You can use Samba or SFTP with QEMU/KVM, instead.

You can even create a small ISO filesystem with genpatches-5.3-9.base.tar.xz inside and mount it from the guest filesystem as a CD/DVD device.

I don't know. I don't personally use Gentoo kernel patches.

Wrap the file(s) in an ISO using mkisofs. Use qemu's management console to use that ISO to back a virtual CD drive. Tell the guest to mount that CD drive. Your file(s) will appear in the mounted filesystem.

Kernel 5.3.7 came out upstream yesterday. The Gentoo maintainer probably needs more time to get the patches ready. At a minimum, he needs time to run whatever quality tests he does on each new kernel. If upstream's changes conflict in any way with the Gentoo patches, then the Gentoo maintainer must first resolve those conflicts before he can begin testing the patches.

If I remember correctly, you can use the following commands from the QEMU console:
  • Show list of devices: info block
  • Mount an ISO image: change <device> <iso>
  • Unmount an ISO image: eject <device>
