Note that with recent GNU tools, you don't need any patches in order
to get started.

If you look at the list of your patches, you'll notice that they are
simply a collection of many many tweak Atmel applies to their version,
yet they didn't push it upstream (by that time).  Some of them is just
new device support, others (like avr-size) are crude hacks, others
(like avr-coff and dwarf2-AVRStudio-workaround) are simply not needed.

I wouldn't recommend using such an old version.  You'll lack a lot of
useful features, in particular the named address space support
(__flash qualifier).

I'd recommend you simply use the latest released GNU tools as a base
to start, without any AVR-specific patches.  They should give you a
pretty well working AVR environment.

Likewise, AVRDUDE is already at version 6.1 meanwhile.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
