[PATCH] docs/api: change POST to PATCH in REST API parameters example

api/rest.rst gives an example of how to POST parameters to the PatchDetail
view at api/patches/<patch_id>. However, the endpoint in question doesn't
support POST - you need to use PUT or PATCH. Change it to PATCH.

I have no idea whether it's *meant* to support POST...
