When you want to use your own patch, you are responsible for 
making it available in DL_DIR.

They way to do what you want is to specify

kernel type (linux (Advanced configuration))  --->
Linux Kernel Version (Linux 2.6.28)  --->
Patches  --->
kernel binary format (XXXX9
Destinations ....

In "Patches" you do:

[*] Add kernel.org patch
[ ] Use only the latest patch version
    Add a kernel.org patch to the Linux kernel (Add an `-rc#' patch)
(1) -rc patch level
[ ] Add ARCH specific patch  --->
()  Additional patch to apply (from $(DL_DIR))
