  Be aware that you have to use patches in order. ie. if there is a
patch-2.4.12-ac[1,2,3,4,5] they have to be applied in order.

I do cd /usr/src/linux
patch -p1 < wherever-the-patch-is/patch-[number] (un-zipped of course)
To the systems programmer, users and applications serve only to provide
a test load.
