Actually, I've never built a kernel-patch package either... but I should
have a fair amount of time available to work on it, so I'm pretty sure I
can put it together reasonably fast.  With a little luck I'll be able to
start on it tonight - worst case would be tomorrow afternoon.

Since the kernel patch itself is more or less self-contained, I can
probably take care of that portion from here.  If I'm wrong about that,
you will (of course) be the first to know. :-)

Sounds good to me!  Talk with you soon.
