These are just warnings, not errors, simply ignore them. patch
successfully replaced the original code with the code in the hunk, but
the starting line number of the replaced code differs by #offset from
the line number which is stored in the patch. Sometimes this could be a
real problem, when there are several instances of the same code in a
file, and patch selects a wrong one to replace.
