Git is pickier than patch.  Anything that will still be applied by patch
with a fuzz will be rejected by git-apply.  For good reason, I several
times ended with a corrupt tree thanks to patch happily (miss-)applying
some stale patch with fuzz.  Heck, it hit akpm recently ...

Anyway, this one was trivial and is in my queue tree now.
