What I'd do is: make a distribution  with the patch included in the
source tree on another machine with your current KERNCONF, etc if you
have backups of them.
Then try reinstalling the machine and if backups are on your side all
should be OK.
I don't follow -current and -hackers much to advise if it has been
fixed upstream. If you have another machine where you can check-out
current tree and see if patch has
been merged there - good.
