Gene-

quilt is a very easy tool to use...  Here is a quick run-down.

#1) remove the stable -rc patch from the tree

#2) install quilt

#3) go to your source tree, and create a directory called "patches"

#4) copy all of the patches from Greg's queue into that "patches" directory,
including the "series" file.

#5) quilt push, to apply the first patch
    quilt push, to apply the second patch (you get the idea)
    quilt push -a , to apply all patches in the series

#6) quilt pop, to back out the most recent patch pushed in
    quilt pop -a to back out the entire series.

If a patch doesnt apply, quilt will let you know about it, and present you with
the option to force the patch to apply.  This is highly unlikely to occur, since
Greg has already done what needs to be done to make these patches apply to the
source.

For a better explanation, see "man quilt".  Using quilt, when you have a list of
patches and a series file containing the merge order is *much* easier that a git
bisection, and can help you to find the problem patch much quicker.

I hope this helps...

Good Luck,

Michael Krufky
