Thanks Jeremy.  I like to try the patches.  But I get the source from
svn rather than the git as Yaakov suggested.  Actually, I am not so
well understand the page
 How should I get files from there? If I click on the file, I will be
just bring into another web page with file source shown with line

Another question is, what patches I should apply?  Only the 2.26.* or
the all other 2.*.* patches?  Thanks a lot.
