I am trying to apply the patch to a vanilla 126.96.36.199 kernel. I have downloaded the kernel from kernel.org and have created a bz2 file from your patch. Then i cd to the kernel source dir and use the command:
bzcat /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52.bz2 | patch -p1
and i get the output:
Patching file drivers/scsi/libata-core.c
patch: **** malformed patch at line 4: ap->mwdma_mask = ent->mwdma_mask;
Am i doing some thing wrong in the way i use the patch? Havn't patched my kernel in a long time.
Hope you know what the problem is
