Hmm. Please be more careful.

The above says it adds two lines (8 -> 10), but the actual patch itself
only adds one, and modifies another:

I'm used to editing patches for things like this, because I have years and
years of just hand-editing patches I didn't like for some reason, but it
looks like you tried to edit a patch without knowing all the rules for how
unified patches work.

So please don't edit patches by hand.  It's a skill nobody should have.

Anyway, I fixed the patch and applied it, but let's not make a habit of it.
