Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To see what patches are installed try below:
showrev -p

OR

showrev -p | grep <patch name>
just like that
showrev -p | grep 120753-05
it helps to see the level of a particular patch

Even you can use PKGINFO command with related package name

see kernel patch
uname -a

    i will try showrev -p My problem so far with pkginfo is it doesn't consider 120753-05 to be the packagename, and I can't figure out what the package name for the update actually is

    I think 120753-05 or whatever it is is not a package name. Try one more time as: pkgchk with full package and path name, See here and I hope this also helps to determine with patch exit code and full Tips and Tricks And also see here for Package related all queries, specially, u will do scroll down and see the section Package Verification Even u can use the above link (which I mentioned in Answer) and it is a free utility.
