Thanks for your directions.
That's what I try to do, but as I don't get kernel ebuilds fully, I don't understand how I can tell ebuild to fetch and apply a patch from the file/ ebuild dir itself.
I don't want the patch to be fetched from Internet. -- Pierre. "Sometimes when I'm talking, my words can't keep up with my thoughts. I wonder why we think faster than we speak. Probably so we can think twice." - Bill Watterson
