GNU patch in the version used does understand GIT patch headers and does 
support things like renames.

The --dry-run option often will not work when the same file is modified more 
than once in the same patch, though.  This is because GNU patch doesn't 
remember the intermediary states of files.

In this case, the patch itself is broken.
