I just mark the entire patch in Emacs, then invoke "M-|", and type

  patch -d /the/root/directory/of/the/project -pN

where N should be chosen by counting the slashes that you will want
Patch to remove before looking for files relative to that root
directory.  For patches produced by "git diff" etc., N is typically 1.
