I've been using Michael Engel's kernel with the patch for Personal
Decstation framebuffer and Accessbus support for about 5 months now,
and the system seems very stable and usable.  However, I'm still
relying on Netbooting to get the system booting and running.  
Last weekend, I thought I would finally try to get Karel's patch
for supporting  NetBSD partitions, and make this a self-booting
machine.  However, I'm a little confused as to the sequence I should
follow for applying the patches.  

When I downloaded the files from Michael Engel's page, no matter if 
I started with the original MIPS 2.2.1 kernel source and applied 
the three patches (patch for Maxine framebuffer, Accessbus; 
patch for R2000/R3000 CPUs; patch for correct timer frequency)
or applied the first patch to the kernel with the last two patches
applied, I got some failures in the patching.  Furthermore, the 
patch on Karel van Houten's page for Netbsd partition support
in 2.2.1 also didn't take.  

Is there available a set of patches that would give both 
Maxine framebuffer and Accessbus support, as well as supporting
the Netbsd partitions?

Thanks in advance for any info,
