How do you apply the patch?

I made this:

Created a directory to put what was needed
cd to that directory
apt-get source nvidia-kernel-source
patch -p0 < attachment-0004.patch
cd nvidia-graphics-drivers-180.29/
dch -i (to change version)
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
cd ..
sudo m-a prepare
sudo dpkg -i nvidia-kernel-source_180.29-1~test.1_amd64.deb
sudo m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source
and the nvidia module still fails to compile
