I use git-mv to move files, which is the equivalence of "svn move".
But when I use git-diff to generate the patch, it looks as if files
are truncated. I can use git-diff -M to create a patch that shows the
renames, but it's not usable by patch.

In fact, it doesn't replace bootcamp, it calls the service provided by
bootcamp. But anyway, it's not a big deal, I can just keep the name

BTW, any comment about the other changes ?
