Mobility Radeon 9000 patch

I found this Patch that appears to add support for Mobility Radeon 9000.

The site doesn't explain how to apply this patch. Can someone tell me how would I go about applying this patch?

that is kind of old
for kernel 2.4.20

if you are using linux 2.4.20
since the patch has no path at the top but just says radeonfb.c
i would find that file in the kernel sourcecode tree and put this patch in the same folder with it and run
patch -Np0 -i ./01-radeon-Mobility9000-linux-2.4.20.diff

i think that's right (-p0 means to use the directory structure on the first line as is without stripping away levels)
