I suppose the right way to do it is to take the official R-1.9.0.tgz
and put the relevant patch set in the spec file. Wouldn't worry too
much about support since Martyn's version is effectively the official
one. However, with 1.9.1 less than a month into the future, there's
not much point in messing with it now.
