Bug#304513: RFP: kernel-patch-v4l2-2.4

Package: wnpp

* Package name    : kernel-patch-v4l2-2.4
  Version         : 2.4.26-1
  Upstream Author : Gerd Knorr <kraxel@bytesex.org>
* URL             : http://dl.bytesex.org/patches/

  Description     : video4linux2 patch against 2.4 kernels

For the reason that I need to use another module that is only existing 
for 2.4 kernels I'm stuck with 2.4 on one system.

I do not know how high the interest is in having this in Debian, but my
intention is to give creating packages for myself a try. I am however
already a bit stuck.

Is there a guide somewhere on how to create kernel-patch packages? There
is nothing on it in the developers reference as far as I can see,
neither did I find anything in the policy manual, and google turns out
fruit less as well.

Of course a kernel-patch package should place it's diffs in
/usr/src/kernel-patches/diffs/ and have some appropriate apply and
unapply scripts, but what are the exact requirements of those scripts?

Any help would be appreciated.
