Summary:                    patch: fails on valid patch
Description: 
This patch:
http://www.amd.com/files/connectivitysolutions/geode/geode_gx/Graphics_LinuxXorg_GX_02.09.0202.patch
for the xorg source, found at:
http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/X11R6.8.1/src-single/X11R6.8.1-src.tar.bz2
works fine using gnu patch, but fails using patch from BusyBox 1.1.0.

As the tarball above is 42MB big, i ask you to extract a smaller example so
we can try to reproduce the issue more easily.

Perhaps try to make a small tarball with only the one unpatched
source-file and the corresponding failing hunk from the patch.

Hmm, looking at this again, it looks like there's an issue with the patch
itself. Go ahead and close this one.
