How do you apply a .pat file?

I have a .pat file, which is a patch for a CPU speed problem in Wine, however I have absolutely no idea how to apply it.
The post on WineHQ simply says "please apply this patch to WINE , recompile, try again" but I have no idea how to do that.

I'm guessing I need to do something in the terminal, but what? I have no idea what commands to use or where the .pat file should be when I run it.

And even once it's applied, how do I recompile Wine?
