Right, that is unexpected/odd/interesting.

I was trying to save mailing list bandwidth by reducing
the patch size.

I generated this with
        $ git format-patch -M -D
but it doesn't apply here either. :(

Using
        $ git format-patch -M
does apply correctly.

It's quite a bit larger though. (120KB vs 14)
I'll send the large patch just to netdev.

Joe
