"However, patches are assumed to be applied "in order" -- it is possible that 
a later patch is dependent upon an earlier one. Be aware of this if you elect 
to "pick and choose" which patches you apply, and if in doubt, apply them 
all, in order."

So, you should apply all patches, in order. Every patch fixes a separate 
thing, and doesn't include fixes for previous ones.

It's the same for all patches - it fixes one specific thing.
