I'll just have to disagree with your thinking.

The book says it is a required patch. The patch has been required
since that version of GCC. Nothing has changed, why does the patch
name need to change?

Please, Dan, explain why "Required patch:" in the instructions
doesn't mean that it is a required patch. If you can logically
explain this, then we'll have something to go on, otherwise, it is
just catering to folks that don't/won't/can't interpret the book.

It simply isn't that hard to determine what "required patch" means.
