NAME
       dh_installkpatches - install kernel patch into package build
       directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installkpatches [ debhelper options ]


DESCRIPTION
       dh_installkpatches is a debhelper script that reads
       debian/package.kpatches or debian/package.kpatches.something files
       describing one or several revisions of a single kernel patch, and
       installs them into the package build directory with customized apply
       and unpatch scripts.

       It also sets the kpatch:Depends substitution variable, that you should
       use in your control file to ensure that generated material in your
       package get all their dependencies.  The use of kpatch:Depends requires
       a build-dependency on version 0.99.3 or later of the dh-kpatches
       package.  Using this variable is now required, since 0.99.16 (mostly
       because too many people forgot to set it).

OPTIONS
       This program does not take any particular option in addition to the
       standard debhelper(1) ones.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(1), make-kpkg(1).
