patch file

A little while back, I ran into a problem compiling buildroot on an older
Ubuntu (9.xx I think), where patch was attempting to perform Perforce source

think this may not be a problem on newer distributions, but perhaps it would be
good to ensure that patch doesn't attempt such ops in the future by using the

The line that we fixed is in apply-patches.sh, but I noticed that there is also
a patch command in grub.mk too.  I have attached a patch for both.
