A word of WARNING about the Enoch/Chameleon bootloader beginning with at least rev2902 (and at least through rev2909):

verbose booting (kernel flag -v) does NOT work!!! The screen just goes black until the sign-in screen appears—IF it appears!

This makes troubleshooting problems especially troublesome and painful! I'm also getting the longest boot times with El Capitan that I've ever gotton on Mac OS X (since I started with Leopard...)

I'm looking for an older version of Enoch to try... Not nearly as easy to find as I expected or hoped! :(

How to use kexttopatch in enoch?

This patch, courtesy of lisai9093 and ceckpawon (insanelymac), will lessen the severity.

The patch should be entered into config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KextsToPatch.
