Wow wow.. hold on a second..
1) uname -a
2) full dmesg
3) pciconf -lv (only multimedia / audio part)
4) cat /dev/sndstat
5) You pick wrong patch, from wrong directory. You are not supposed to
   pick anything from '/incoming/'
6) Judging from those compiler error message, your source already messed
   up. You need a clean, pristine source to apply those patches.
