       dh_installkpatches - install kernel patch into package build directories


       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)


       debhelper(1), make-kpkg(1).
