the patch will not change anything in your '/lib' directory. It seems 
that you applied the patch in the 'linux' directory which is often a 
symlink to the source tree of the kernel which was shipped your system.

If this is the case, then you have patched the wrong kernel tree, you 
must patch the generic Linux kernel that you can download at 
http://www.kernel.org and then compile and install this kernel.

It is also possible that you have not enabled these devices when you 
configured the kernel source tree.
