advice on a patch set

Hi all,

I am trying to package the swsusp2 kernel patch, which comes in
hundred little files. My thought was to simply concat these files
into one large patch for use with kpatches... however, this does not
work because some files are created by early patches and later
modified. Since kpatches first tests the patch with --dry-run, it
will fail when the later patches do not find a file to patch.

What can I do? Is there a tool that can merge multiple patches into
a single patch in a "recursive" manner (i.e. to produce the smallest
patch that has the same result)?

combinediff looks promising, but the approach I tried...
  1 + 2 -> A
  A + 3 -> B
  B + 4 -> C
did not work (it can only merge pairs).

Thanks for any help.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
