    Since patches are usually generated from outside the linux dir, that's
    where I like to be... This is what I use, which is basically "shut up
    and be clean unless there's an error"

    $ bzcat ~/download/kernel/linux-2.2.9.tar.bz2 | tar xf -

    $ # 'linux' is now subdir of current dir
    $ bzcat ~/download/kernel/patch-2.2.10.bz2 | patch -sp0

    Patch option '-E' is normally unnecessary I think.
