Please use the '-M' option to git diff (or whatever you're using) to
make it detect renames -- the resulting patch would be a lot shorter.

And also please ensure the filenames listed in the WHENCE file are all
correct. You don't seem to have fixed those to reflect your changes. And
in fact I think the WHENCE file is *already* listing the bcm4329 files
in the wrong directory?
