The patches are part of the source rpm of the kernel (the .src.rpm
package, not the kernel-source "binary" package). You can download it
from the link that is part of the "System Stuff" page in Planet CCRMA.
Once you have it you can install it with "rpm -Uvh kernel-xxx.src.rpm".
All sources will be stored in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES, the spec file
that controls the build process will be in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS. 

That spec file will have all the references to the patches (search for
"patch", there are two references for each patch, the first links a
particular patch with a file, the second "applies" it in the proper

You can, if you want, "prepare" the kernel up to the point were things
are going to be compiled by saying:
  rpmbuild -bp kernel-x.spec
(x is the version of the kernel). 

That will unpack the sources and apply all the patches (and stop there).
The build tree can be found at /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-x/linux-x.
