That looks right, but did you clean out the directory beforehand?  I
ask because the same thing happened to me.  Everything worked when I
ran "make clean" in /usr/src/linux before patching.  

Unfortunately, the patch didn't help, and the kernels i compiled won't
boot any more than those compiled with the unpatched 2.6.14-rc3 do.
