Debian provide un-modified source for kernel-patch
Flame aside ... let's look at technical side.

But that requires net connection. You know we burn to CD as *stable* too.

I am not an expert but I think you should try along what Herbert Xu
suggested which seems to give you very easy path to patch files. I did
not know but looks very nice.
$ apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.22 kernel-patch-debian-2.4.22
$ tar xjf /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.22.tar.bz2
$ cd /usr/src/kernel-patch
There is a file /usr/src/kernel-patches/all/2.4.22/debian/list whose
content goes like:
# This file is sorted by patch dependency. The patch which applies to the
# upstream kernel must come first.
patch-2.4.22-1 2.4.22 2.4.22-1
This seem to offer very good path to apply patch to the upstream kernel
which must be applied first.
Did you try using this?
