You and I can easily see how this patch can be folded into the next
one. Git is broken in this situation. I've reported the issue to the
git people and they acknowledge it, but no one has fixed it. Git's
merge strategy does not handle the case of a file splitting. When git
tries to merge this one-liner into the next patch that splits the
files, it does the merge wrong which then messes up the entire patch
