dh_installkpatches - install kernel patch into package build
dh_installkpatches [ debhelper options ]
dh_installkpatches is a debhelper script that reads
debian/package.kpatches or debian/package.kpatches.something files
describing one or several revisions of a single kernel patch, and
installs them into the package build directory with customized apply
and unpatch scripts.
It also sets the kpatch:Depends substitution variable, that you should
use in your control file to ensure that generated material in your
package get all their dependencies. The use of kpatch:Depends requires
a build-dependency on version 0.99.3 or later of the dh-kpatches
package. Using this variable is now required, since 0.99.16 (mostly
because too many people forgot to set it).
This program does not take any particular option in addition to the
standard debhelper(1) ones.
