It is probally patching one of the source files.  Open the patch file up in a text editior and you should see the filename within the patch script.

Try:
--------
patch -p1 < /path/to/patch_file
--------

Most probably, it should find and patch the files properly.

If you get asked which file to patch while you are running patch, that means you are in the wrong directory when you issue the command. Check the patchfile (it's just a text file) and see what files it's trying to modify, and then make your current working directory so that the paths in the patch files make sense. For example, if the patch file is trying to modify the file 'linux/drivers/usb/net/usbnet.c' then your working directory should be /usr/src/ (and that directory should contain the 'linux' directory.
