Though the patch is to the kernel, it is dependent upon
the GCC version used to build the kernel. So it seems that
the patch should go into patches/gcc-4.0.x and be applied
to linux-2.6.x. Will that work? Or will crosstool attempt
to apply the patch to GCC if the kernel patch is in the
gcc-4.0.x directory?

And no ... I haven't looked at the code Luke :-P
