Thanks, Ned, for waking me up by calling out my name loudly :-D

As Ned said correctly, you (OP) are doing it right by following the
CentOS way.  The "standard" way is strongly discouraged when building
the CentOS kernel.

The problem I see is that your patch does not apply verbatim on the
CentOS kernel. Take a look at the .rej file and find where it is
failing.  Line numbers are apparently not matching.
