Thank you for the report and patch.
I've created a "commit" for you per the guidelines in HACKING.
Even for such a small patch, it helps us maintainers if you follow those
guidelines.  If you had sent something like the following, I could have
simply run "git am FILE" to address your bug report.  With just the patch,
I have to compose the log message, make an effort to get your name spelled
properly in the commit message, (since once pushed it cannot be modified),
and to write this message explaining why it's best that I not take the time,
in general.
