Keep in mind the next time you do a cvsup it will nuke the patch so
you will have to reapply it... now if you do this often enough you
might want to consider keeping a local cvs repository that way when
you update your sources it will not overwrite the patch... see
develop(8) for some ideas on how to set this up (even though the
source tree layout they suggest is a little weird you just better off
doing cvs -d /home/ncvs update in /usr/src)
