Hi,

You may have a path problem for your patches. The path should be given in your 
*_defconfig. 


And buildroot will automatically apply patches at the appropriate time if they 
are named in the form linux*patch. See the makefile.

so 0001-linux-2.6.38-rc5.patch should be linux-001-2.6.38-rc5.patch

Regards, Steve
