applying patch-3.10.40-vs2.3.6.8.diff to linux-3.10.41 fails.

the upstream change of saving an return/error code to a local variable (for
more elaborate testing in later statements) instead of testing it within a
conditional [1] invalidates a patch context and causes the patch hunk to fail.

patching file net/core/rtnetlink.c
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1059.
Hunk #2 succeeded at 1962 (offset 11 lines).
1 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file net/core/rtnetlink.c.rej


the attached patch corrects the patch context, but doesn't change the
linux-vserver logic, and fixes Makefile's EXTRAVERSION, too.

1. acquire linux-3.10.41
2. apply patch-3.10.40-vs2.3.6.8.diff
3. apply the attached patch-3.10.40-41-vs2.3.6.8.diff

i've successfully built the resulting kernel and tested it against testme.sh
and testfs.sh in virtualbox.
