Hi Lancer, there's only two nvidia patches in that directory (each for specific versions), so you only need apply one. I was thinking that actually you would not use them straight, but just open them up to see if the lines in the patches alread exist in your current kernel source, to rule out if that would actually help.
Ironically I just updated a boat load of packages myself and suffered a failed nvidia install. Hopefully a fresh kernel will fix the problem, if not I'll be asking you if can tell me how you fixed yours
