For my Board I need to apply some minor patches to the kernel. My 
configuration looks like this:

Location of patches in project tree:
target/device/sheevaplug/SeagateDockStar/kernel-patches/
-> linux-2.6.34-0001-ABC.patch
-> linux-2.6.34-0002-XYZ.patch
-> DONOTUSENOW-linux-2.6.34-0002-XYZTesting.patch

.config includes:
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_USE_CUSTOM_CONFIG=y
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_CUSTOM_CONFIG_FILE="target/device/sheevaplug/SeagateDockStar/SeagateDockStar-linux-2.6.34.1.config"
BR2_LINUX_KERNEL_PATCH="target/device/sheevaplug/SeagateDockStar/kernel-patches/"

The patches were correctly applied during kernel compilation via buildroot.

Regards,
Marcus
