I've investigated this. The cause seems to be a patch

commit 5352161fc449d7a7573b2e13bd02162aae7aeb69

applied by yourself which cleaned up all sorts of random whitespace
noise and broke further patch application. Given that this is staging
and random whitespace is less important than actually fixing the code I
think the fix is to revert that commit and then apply mine.
