Dunno. Might work, might cause problems. I'm not that familiar with the 
contents of the patch, so all I can say is try it if you want to, and maybe 
it'll work fine. Worst-case, it won't, and you'll have to compile the needed 
kernel modules by hand. Personally, I think that if you're that comfortable 
patching and compiling your own kernel, I'd recommend just compiling the 
needed kernel modules against your custom kernel.

But if you do go down this route, you'd *definitely* want to use the kernel 
config file shipped with the kernel source for the kernel you're rebuilding 
on top of, with the only deviation being anything to enable cle2666 support.

Also, I think the kernel-module rpms will be on the lookout for the matching 
kernel rpm to have been installed, so you'd want to install that first, then 
create your new kernel with the same name, overwriting the rpm-installed
