How to get the patch file for it?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that, but if you're looking for the 802.15.4 dissector source code, you can download it with the rest of the latest stable Wireshark sources from the Wireshark download page, extract the archive and then look in epan/dissectors/ for the packet-ieee802154.c file.
