 1) cd /usr/src/linux (or wherever you have kept the kernel sources)
 2) zcat /usr/doc/kernel-package/Problems.gz > kpatch
 3) patch -s < kpatch
 4) find . -name \*.rej (any output is a cause for concern)
 5) find . -name \*.orig (just one orig file should show up)
 6) make menuconfig (or config or xconfig, take your pick)
 7) make-kpkg clean
 8) make-kpkg -r Custom.1.0 kernel_image
 9) dpkg --contents ../kernel-image-*.deb
10) dpkg -i ../kernel-image-*.deb (when you are satisfied with the image) 

	Best of luck.
