Generally these would be applied via git-am into a local git clone of 
the sources.

As many of these patches will be to the driver this means applying the 
patches to your kernel and recompiling. It's a quite involved process 
and not really for the faint hearted.

If you really want to test them out, the easiest way would be to install 
Mandriva Cooker (the development version of Mandriva) and the latest 
kernel package. I'm not sure if these patches are in the latest cooker 
kernel yet but Herton is part of the kernel team and the patches will no 
doubt show up soon if they are not there already.
