Not quite sure.  I actually just grabbed the entire source
tree and applied the rc2 patch.  Just because of how much work goes
on with the kernel from different groups, I would not try to mix
source trees and patches from different places.  There's no easy way
to reconcile what one group does versus another, unless you use
something like CVS or Bitkeeper, and we all know where that's going

So you should be fine applying the patches just like you said.
