You don't need the patch in your case.

You may find the DKMS module builder RPM and the ppp_mppe rpm to go with 
it useful to allow the MPPe encryption to work.

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44827&package_id=120221&release_id=361763

You also need to make sure you have the latest pptpd rpm installed
pptpd-1.3.0-0.i386.rpm
And you'll need an updated pppd rpm to match
ppp-2.4.3-5.rhel4.i386.rpm

These work for Centos 4, but from the looks of the kernel you are using 
your system is much older...

What centos version are you using?

You should also be sticking to RPMs whenever possible to make sure your 
update process is hassle free..
