Funny you should ask. I just started doing this today and found a few snags.

I'm compiling 2.0.24 (it has the big ping patch). I took the stock
386 sources and generated the /usr/src/linux source tree. Then ,I
applied the axp-diffs-2.0.21.gz patch. The trouble with it is that it
puts new include files in a 386 directory. The trick here is to patch
this way.

cd /usr/src/linux
zcat axp-diffs-2.0.21.gz | patch -p1 >& patchlog

Note that we patch from within the linux source directory. If you
don't do this, you will need to move the files from the /usr/src/386
tree into the /usr/src/linux tree.

I'm not done compiling, but I suspect this will get you closer to the
final solution.
