  In that case you could even do a format-patch.

  That's what I mean:

  - copy your own commit message text into the patch;

  - mention the upstream URL 
http://busybox.net/downloads/fixes-1.21.0/busybox-1.21.0-platform.patch

  - Add your Sob.


  Actually, I don't even really want to claim that this is the way it 
_should_ be done. Rather, it is what I as a reviewer tell our 
contributors, because that's what I understand our policy is.

  That is... unfortunate.  Otherwise we could apply them directly with 
BUSYBOX_PATCH (after the patch that allows foreign URLs has been applied).

  Arnout
