Applying a kernel patch..

I've been trying to apply the ck patch to my 2.6.11 kernel. This is newly download..and just moved into the /usr/src folder. When I try to apply it...I get

Linux:/usr/src/linux # bzip2 -dc ../patch-2.6.11-ck7.bz2 | patch -p1
patching file arch/i386/Kconfig
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n]
I have never applied a patch to this kernel...any idea why it's saying this?

for what I see there, it says you already have the patch applied, is this possible? Dont you have the option when you use "make menuconfig" (or your favorite config) then?

Your command looks fine but maybe you want to do it in the usual 2 steps instead of one... bunzip2 first, then patch -p1 ?

What is ck btw?
