This is probably a stupid question, but, do you have to unpack the sources everytime you apply a patch (i.e., delete everything in /usr/src and untar the sources)? Or, do you just keep applying the patches (in order) to the source you unpacked the first time?

    Download the source, unpack it, apply patches as they are issued. If you delete the sources, apply patches again, in the order they were issued, if there was more than one patch issued.
