The p parameter tells patch to drop some parameters from the
path name. Here's how I applied this patch.

$ cvs co -d gnugo-3.1.12 gnugo
$ cd gnugo-3.1.12
$ patch -p0 <../current/trevor_1_12.1

This is correct because the directory of the first patch is
utils/gg_utils.c Relative to the current directory that's
where you want to be . If it said (for example)
../gnugo-3.1.11/utils/gg_utils.c then patch -p1 would work. Occasionally
someone's sent a patch that you have to use -p2 or cd regressions/ first.
