Smile patching kernel with latest patches within tarball ,possible?


Can we patch the kernel with latest pre-patch without extracting kernel-source?
for eg:
latest kernel tarball is 2.6.28.7 .
latest pre-patch is 2.6.29-rc7

How can we patch the kernel tarball without extracting ?
Is it possible?

And in any case, you need to extract the kernel tree so you can read the doco on how to apply the patch ...
