Save the patches, make sure you have your kernel source in /usr/src/linux, change to that dir, then try "patch -p1 --dry-run < patchname".

If it asks which file to patch, you have to adjust the "-p" flag for the amount of dirs it should strip before trying to apply the patch.
If it shows ".rej" messages it means the patch won't apply cleanly, meaning you either got the wrong kernel version or you're required to tinker with applying the patch.
If this test run doesn't show errors run it without the "--dry-run" flag to apply.

If you want to catch output and errors and append it to a file called /tmp/patch.log try this:
"patch -p1 --dry-run < patchname 2>&1 | tee -a /tmp/patch.log".
