No, it is a bug related to utf-8 and wrong conversion of content in

Applying patch #177964 using 'git am'
Description: [U-Boot] net:macb: add line break
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/andreas/bin/pwclient", line 481, in <module>

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xdf' in

There may be some additional issues with 'patch not found' when working
with the hash. I did not discover these cause I do not work with hash
but use the id.

Best regards,

Andreas Bießmann
