I just finished building a kernel based on kernel-2.6.32-71.18.2.el6.src.rpm. I hand applied the patches. Like you said
one applied clean the other applied with a fuzz offset of -36 (IIRC). I am installing now to test.

My rebuild was simply cp the /boot/config-2.6.32-71.18.2.el6.i686 to .config;make oldconfig;make rpm

That is why I was asking about the proper way.

I have just installed the kernel and will now start testing.
