How does the idea of a script which does the following grab you?

* when given the directory containing the kernel source, and the
directory containing the patches, automatically brings the kernel
up to the current version.
* Know the correct flags for applying the patches.
* It checks for reject files, to let you know if the patch failed
* It cleans up the original files after patching.
* Makes coffee for you to drink while the new kernel is building.

For an 80% solution (it doesn't do the last point) have a look at
/usr/src/linux/README for instructions on applying patches, and this
includes details of /usr/src/linux/scripts/patch-kernel.
