I tried the attached patch and it didn't work either. After creating
a patch in this repo myself (and googling the error) I realized that
your patch didn't have the "a/", resp. "b/" string prefix in the diff
filenames. After adding these prefixes by hand (attached), the patch
applied for me.

How did you generate these patches? It's the first time I had this issue.

Anyways, I compiled the code and the code looks correct to me. I never
encountered this issue myself so I am not sure if this patch is really
needed or not. If it solves a real issue people are having, applying it
makes sense.
