Rather than try to dig my way through the patch process, I've decided to
venture into the (thus far unexplored) territory of kernel configuration
options, and do a neater though more invasive change that way. This proved
easier than I feared, and as a result, the (kernel) patch issue is no longer
relevant to the job at hand.
Nevertheless, a big thank you to those who responded; the extra knowlegde
gained will surely be useful at some point in the future.
