There's no problem applying these patches.
I go with a fixed rev of linuxbios for OLPC because I want to avoid the
'broken tip of tree' experience. Every once in a while somebody busts a
linuxbios build for a given platform due to things you can't always
foresee. So, by using a fixed version of linuxbios, we can ensure that
anyone who uses buildrom is guaranteed to get a working flash image.

I think I'm not sure what you mean. Our goal should be to have a
known-good, patch-free svn rev of linuxbios to use for buildrom.
I don't like local patches.
