When you apply a patch, everything that is NOT patched correctly ends up 
in the source dir with a file ending of .rej so just do an ls *.rej, then 
look at all of those files, there is what you have to patch manually and 
also in what files you have to do it, since the reject files get tha same 
name as the file they tried to patch.

So a failed patch for comm.c is saved in comm.c.rej
