You can apply any patchset you want, the config is just an easy short cut.

When you try to build a non-working patch, you will get your error
message during the patch process.

You should expect the patch to work for the kernel version it was
designed for.

You do have the freedom to test the patch on a later kernel, and
for a range of kernels it will work, but don't expect a patchset
to work for all future versions.

If you want to use a patchset, on a later kernel than what is supported,
then you have to manually adapt the patches to your desired kernel
and then use the custom patch feature.
