You don't apply "alpha" patches incrementally, you need to back previous
alpha patch before applying new alpha patch. Alpha patches are being
applied against respective beta kernel.

That is, if you have pre7-5 and want to apply pre7-6, you need
to first back out (patch -R) path pre7-5 and then appply pre7-6.

On the other hand beta patches ARE incremental ones, and you apply them
