Basically you read https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/maint-guide/ and
after that you download the package sources ("apt-get source sysinfo),
add the patch and build a new package.

In order to make things easier for testers I built a package that
includes the patch in one of my PPAs:
https://launchpad.net/~seahawk1986-hotmail/+archive/ubuntu/misc/+packages?field.name_filter=sysinfo&field.status_filter=published&field.series_filter=xenial
- simply download
https://launchpad.net/~seahawk1986-hotmail/+archive/ubuntu/misc/+files/sysinfo_0.7-11~ppa1_all.deb
(this url might change in the future, if I need to upload a newer
version) and install it.

If you want to have a look at the source code for the patched package
(the patch is in the subdirectory debian/patches), you can use the dget
command (from the package devscripts), which will allow you to download
the sources:

dget -xu
