http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/patch-2.6.30.1.bz2

Patch is out for 2.6.30.1, how exactly do I do it.  I run
patch -P1 < patch-2.6.30.1.bz2 in /linux-2.6.30 directory where the 2.6.30 source was?
Do I extract the patch?  
This is where I need more guidance as I have not done it. Usually I just get the entire thing 2.6.30.1.tar.bz2 but now I don't have access to high speed connection and I just want to see if I can do it.

Thanks in advance,

Antonio
