grub-2002-02-19-doc-patch.patch:
----------------------
JES. OK, this is mad but how else do you do it?  The part of the original
grub-2002-02-19-doc.patch which patches the ChangeLog won't stick because
the ChangeLog has moved on, so the patch command fails so the whole rpm
build fails ;-(  So, this is a patch to the patch which accomodates the
change in the ChangeLog!
