No, you don't. If it were any patch other than speakup, I'd say that it might 
be a good idea, just to make sure the base linux system for that version runs 
ok on your machine. However there is no technical reason why you have to have 
a particular kernel running in order to patch that kernel's source tree, and 
that goes for any patch, not just speakup.
