OK, in that case the patch does go in patches/openmoko-HEAD/.... and you
should be able to use quilt to manage it (that directory gets symlinked
by MokoMakefile into the openmoko svn checkout.

I thought you wanted to patch the frozen OE checkout, so I said to use
the "other patches subdir"
(patches/openembedded-e2dbb52fe39df7ef786b6068f6178f29508dfded).  Since
it's actually an openmoko svn tree file you want to patch, then use the
patches/openmoko-HEAD dir as specified above.
