Let us check the non-whitespace differences (the whitespaces are
completely different in this patch) between the Linux COPYING file
and this patch:

<cut>
> +Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
> +51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

This should have been "St." and not "Street"

<cut>
> +TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

"GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE" missing before
"TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION"

<cut>
> + One line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.

This should have been

<one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>

<cut>
> + You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
> + with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
> + 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

This should have been:

51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

<cut>
> + signature of Ty Coon, 1 April 1989

This should have been

<signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
