Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2017-08-08 17:32:52 UTC
It seems patch writes rejected hunks to Oops.rej if the source file(path?) does not exist; if this is true for multiple files in the patch Oops.rej is overwritten with each successive one.

Hmm...  The next patch looks like a unified diff to me...
