Probably you should apply only the first six patches (1,2,3,4,5,6)
because directory symlinks and permissions aren't right after patch 7.
[I don't care about directory symlinks now; permissions are 775 instead of 755.]
I'm working on a different approach for those; it's not ready.
However, the first six patches save 25% (a factor of 4/3),
and patch 7 saves another 25% by replacing most /bin/cp with cpio.

Thanks for your work, but your patches are kind of broken.

Either your mail program scrambled them, or you have a weird git or patch implementation.

e.g. first diff hunk in patch 4 says
@@ -863,49 +863,63 @@ filter_kernel_modules_by_path () (

but in fact it should be like
@@ -863,45 +863,59 @@ filter_kernel_modules_by_path () (

All blank lines are missing in the hunks!
