Since you did not just send to the list but also sent a private copy to
my mail account, I am pretty sure that the patch never attached itself.
We've had various occurences of patches not making it through the list
server, but in this case, my personal copy arrived without going through
the list server, so you likely just forgot.  Happens.

My replies have a tendency to cause friction.  To help mitigating
damage, feel free to forward problematic posts to me adding a subject
like "timeout 1d" (for a suggested timeout of 1 day) or "offensive".
