In my opinion you'd waste much less time trying to port these patches to
a more recent, still maintained kernel. 3.16 is still maintained by Ben,
and not too far from 3.17 (less than 3.11). You may have more luck there
and also more luck to get it to boot on a recent machine.

Also on web10g I'm seeing patches for kernels 3.2 to 3.4. 3.2 is also
still maintained by Ben. You can try this one, maybe it'll work, who
knows.
