it works fine here, I would also change the pkgver to something more
specific than the date of the last commit, as there are probably more
than one each day

if a packages doesn't use tags, i have been using 
<number of commits>.<last short commit>

pkgver() {
	cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
	echo $(git rev-list --count master).$(git rev-parse --short master)

(if you use one of the fragment things for your source=() url like
#branch=working or something, you need to change master to makepkg)


Also note that 5 lines in your .patch files have whitespace at the end
of the lines.
