LP's patches come with tabs expanded to spaces, a trailing blank on each
line and one leading blank removed.  It would be nice if they were
simpler to apply, but since his changes are generally good, I do take
the time to clean the diff's up and apply them.  (I do this by tweaking
the filenames to match, using diffstat and "patch -l --dry-run" to see
when I've got those consistent, and then diff'ing the new/original files
to iron out the whitespace).
