Thank you for your help and patience.  This is the first time I've used
quilt or patch, so I was flailing a bit...

I finally got the patch from #599 to work, but it took a slight
modification.  The patch as-is would only work if one ran the quilt import
from /home/moko.  This of course added the patch to the series file in
/home/moko/patches, not in /home/moko/patches/openmoko-HEAD.

In order to add it properly to the build, I needed to add "openmoko/trunk/"
to the beginnings of the file paths in the patch file.

Then I could run the quilt import command from /home/moko/openmoko and have
it work OK.
