[llvmlinux] Using quilt instead of python scripts

The recent change to the build system to use quilt has broken msm and 
would likely break any non-tip Linux build (i.e. raspberry pi).

The old system used to allow upstream patches that didn't apply to be 
filtered at the patch hunk level. Currently if a patch hunk does not 
apply then the patching process fails and there is no easy way forward.

I am all for using quilt as long as it doesn't remove the previous 
functionality.
