In this case, I think it will actually help, thanks.  Note that it won;t
apply cleanly to your tree, but the fixup is easy :-)

And I discovered that "git am" doesn't like the style of patch I did
(without the body of the deleted file).  If you just delete
drivers/net/ethernet/ibm/iseries_veth.c before trying to apply the patch
it will probably work.
