[PATCH] Flag empty patches as errors
A patch that contains no actual diff, and that doesn't change any meta-data is bad. It shouldn't be a patch at all, and git-apply shouldn't just accept it. This caused a corrupted patch to be silently applied as an empty change in the kernel, because the corruption ended up making the patch look empty. An example of such a patch is one that contains the patch header, but where the initial fragment header (the "@@ -nr,.." line) is missing, causing us to not parse any fragments. The real "patch" program will also flag such patches as bad, with the message patch: **** Only garbage was found in the patch input. and we should do likewise.
