means the relative paths are wrong.
run patch from inside the linux src dir, and give it the -p1
foocat patchfile.foo | patch -p1 --dry-run
if no errors, run previous command again, but without the --dry-run
even easier, if you look in .../src/linux/scripts there's a script
called "patch-kernel", which will do all the hard work for you. just
point it at your linux tree, and at a directory containing your
patches. see the top of the script for precise usage instructions.
