    AFAIK there doesn't exist any similar software on Linux.

    A similar task could be accomplished, at least on Debian, creating a
    parallel chrooted environment (search for debootstrap) where to apply
    and try the patches and
    then replicating the upgrade on the original system.

    Try to look to UML (User Mode Linux) too. Maybe it can be useful since
    it allows to run a "virtual" instance of linux on linux itself.
