I am doing:

/usr/src/my2.6> sudo patch -p1 < patch_catalin
patching file mm/bootmem.c
Hunk #1 FAILED at 435.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 461.
2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mm/bootmem.c.rej
patching file mm/page_alloc.c
Hunk #1 FAILED at 3659.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file mm/page_alloc.c.rej

Any hints why it wont apply? Will this patch be in the next RC?

Best
Zeno
