    If you require the patches to be applied on the kernel source, use the ‘patch’ command. If you do a ‘man patch’ you can understand how to use the patch command.

    Once you apply the patch successfully, do the following:

    (1) Re-configure the kernel (if necessary – This will be dependent on what patches you had applied to the kernel)
    (2) If (1) was successful, Re-compile the kernel (by following the same procedure that you had used earlier for the original compilation)
    (3) If (2) was successful, Install the kernel again by doing the ‘make install’ command
    (4) If (3) was successful, Re-boot and boot it up with the newly compiled kernel and see if the applied patches are getting executed correctly.
