Sorry. I forgot to hit reply to all. Yes, it fixes my problem.

patch -p0 < yourpatch

Did I do patch wrong?

Hmmm... I wish you'd given me this warning a little earlier. I've already
gotten gentoo to add it.

I'm pretty sure it won't be the default though. It should go into what's
called a masked package, which means it hasn't been tested enough to be
called stable, so use at your own risk. If it turns out to be bad, they can
always security mask it or remove it entirely. I just got the email today,
so I don't know what the actual ebuild looks like. I submitted mine as a
masked package though. They would have to change it though because I removed
all architectures but x86.
