Hmmm, sorry for the confusion.  I didn't read the patch carefully.
The correct way of applying it for 8.11.x is:

        # cd /usr/src/contrib/sendmail/src
        # patch -p1 < /PATH/TO/sendmail.8.11.6.security.cr.patch

I'm running the patch now, but it looks strange to me..
Is this patch suppose to take a long time (minutes) without any output on the screen?
