Hi !

All your patches have various problems with the actual patch format.

Patches should be submitted so that they apply with patch -p1, yours
don't. In fact, the base directory you diffed from seems to differ from
patch to patch. I'm manually fixing those this time around, but please
get that sorted out before you submit a new batch.
