Another patch bug...

The patch is screwed up again...the 1.3.30 this time. Linus's
arch/alpha/kernel/time.c patch got applied to my arch/i386/kernel/time.c
file...I'm in the process of hacking it, but it's kinda ugly, and
there's lots of duplicated symbols.

On another topic....Whenever I apply the patch, I get new files
appearing in the directory I patch from (usually /usr/src, with a symlink
to linux-1.3.whatever). It would be nice to include a little textfile
describing the new files, and where to put them in the source tree
structure. Admittedly I can usually figure out when the Make bombs out
or by looking at the filename and seeing that a NCRxxxx.c file is a new
CD-Rom driver, but I'd rather not have to guess...
