That patch was included in the 2.6.3pre1 release (though a small
portion of it proved to be unneeded and was not applied).  See the web site for the source (and there's a debian release
in experimental which has a version of 2.6.2.pre3.1-1 because the
official version number would not sort prior to the final 2.6.3
when it is released).
