The patch is very static, e.g. assumes `-p1` as an argument.
I guess there is no good/easy way to change that?

There might arise other issues, like footprint mismatches (yes, a user might be able to expect that, but then a lot of users just wouldn't). Also those patches can't be signed with e.g. opt key to make signify happy.

In it's current form, I'd want to decline and close the ticket.
Since there has been no reaction from anyone else so far, I'll leave it open for a while to give others a chance to participate.
