It _looks_ fine to me. However, I have not taken it for a test run yet
as the patch did not apply easily with git.
How are you creating the patch? Can you use "git format-patch" and
send the entire patch (it looks like the main one is missing the header)
either using "git send-email" or less preferably as an attachment.
