Patches have dependency, if you look inside my package you will see that
the acpi patch depends on the debian-unacpi patch and that the swsusp
patch depends on the acpi patch.
When I install the swsusp patch into the kernel with:
make-kpkg --added-patches swsusp
it will cause all three patches to be applied in the correct order.
I don't know if it's really worth it to seperate it to acpi and swsusp
patches since the swsusp is tied to the exact acpi patch and is not
large so a single package for them is best.
But if you package it, it's your decision.
