Thanks

First you do not need the genpatches with the pf-sources.
The pf-sources ebuilds install the sources of the pf-kernel which is a fork of the linux kernel and as such, stands alone.

=> The pf-sources ebuilds won't install the gentpatches.
=> If you want them, you'll actually need to patch them by your own means. But, of course, chances to succeed are rather poor.

BTW, if you want both ck-patchset and genpatches, then the ck-sources are what you want.
