If the kernel version doesn't change, then you are not running the new

The patch is not for a RedHat kernel. It is vs Linux kernel 2.2.17, not
RedHat kernel 2.2.16-3, there is a difference. You probably (hopefully)
got a few errors compiling so it never actually built anything.

If I wasn't clear enough, I'm suggesting you build and boot a non-RedHat
kernel. Put the new kernel on a floppy or use a separate machine to avoid
messing up your existing system.

Please give an example of what the permissions were before and what they
are after.
