I got a kernel built with the patches using the wiki and your notes in 0004586 (thanks). I am pleased  to report
that they appear to work as advertised. With:
net.ipv6.conf.default.forwarding = 2
net.ipv6.conf.all.accept_ra = 2

Router solicitations were issued and router advertisements were accepted and I could still forward packets.

I didn't make new patches, I simply did
%define with_fuzzy_patches 1

Also what should the normal rpmbuild line be?
I ended up doing
rpmbuild -bb --target=`uname -m` kernel.spec --with firmware --without debug --without debuginfo

The first time I didn't have --with firmware and the kernel wouldn't install.
