Patch patch

I 'modified' my copy of linux kernel with rm -rf, so that I do not
store files that are not important to me (arch/* except i386, for
example). Later I found that it is unpatchable, even through patch
2.1's docs looked like it should work. -f option did not work too well
on missing files. I was forced to patch patch tool (which is pretty
messy one, what about rewrite? ;-).

But now I have bug, I have fix, but I do not know who to post it. I
know it is not too much related to kernel (except that bug may bite
you, too)...
