    i have had excellent luck for a long time running doing similar to the
    following:

    1. cd /usr/src/ (i store linux in /usr/src/linux/)
    2. mv /tmp/patch.123.bz2 storage/
    3. bunzip2 storage/patch.123.bz2
    4. review patch
    5. patch -p0 < storage/patch.123
    6. find linux/ -name "*.rej"
    7. ...

    and all is well. very rarely do i find reject files. you may add or
    detract from the list as is appropriate.
