Patches are generally source code patches. They're just plain old ASCII
text. Save the patch to a file (don't cut-and-paste - it rarely works).
Then run:

 patch -p0 < patchfilename

In the appropriate directory - the same directory used to generate the
patch, normally obvious by looking at the filenames in the patch.
