Fedora tracks the upstream kernel as closely as possible.  Therefore, if
you want a patch in Fedora, you need to get it merged with the Linux
kernel.  Either submit the patch yourself (to the Linux Kernel Mailing
List), or better yet, get the maintainer of the patch to submit it.

If the patch is to a kernel _module_, then you can rebuild that module
fairly easily.  Get the 'kernel-devel' package for your kernel (ie, 'yum
install kernel-devel'), and then cd into the directory of the module.
Assuming the makefile is set up right (which should have been done for
you), you can:

make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` modules

And your module will build.  Then copy the .ko file
to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/... over top of the stock version, but make
_sure_ to back up the stock version of the module before copying the new
one over it.
