The easiest way to use the patches is to do:
tar jxvf <original_linux_dist>.tar.bz2
bzcat <patch1>.bz2 | patch -p1
and repeat the last step until you're at the version you want.
-p tells it to ignore a part of the filename. The patch has descriptions
telling it which file to patch, but they tend to be something like
which you don't have (you just have linux). So go into the directory, and
use -p1 to tell it to skip the first part of the filename.
