thanks - this is useful to those who are not that much on the bleeding
edge.

it's harmless: when the 'patch' utility didnt find the 'context' of the
patch chunk at its claimed position (because all patch chunks have
precise coordinates of source code embedded), but finds them 'nearby'
(or at least, somewhere in the file), it emits this reminder that the
underlying code did change since the patch was generated. Generating a
'clean' patch will get rid of these messages.
