Unfortunately, this patch will not apply to my src tree for 2.6.35-rc3,
even after I fixed the unwanted line wrap in the first active line.

I get:

Did my grabbing it with swiftfox damage it even further?

I don't know what caused the corruption, but it's a systematic error.
Throughout the patch, the dereference symbol -> has been changed to
-& so it's not surprising that the patch won't apply. I've never seen
that particular problem before.

I don't think the line numbers (e.g.532) are responsible.
