Btw., if people have problems with rejects from trivial patches, the 
'mpatch' tool does wonders in resolving the easy ones:

  http://oss.oracle.com/~mason/mpatch/

when you get a .rej file, first check whether mpatch can resolve it 
conflict-free:

  mpatch -d kernel/somefile.c.rej

if there are no conflicts then:

  mpatch -a kernel/somefile.c.rej

quilt refresh, review the result and it's done in the majority of cases.
