The lfs patches are in a subversion repository. Some of them are
written by people working on LFS, some are nicked from elsewhere.
Personally I find patches to be clumsy. I would much rather use a sed
if I can get away with it.

As others have said, if you read the top 10 or so lines of the patches
they should give you some background info of where the patch came from
and what it's for.
