The point of that directory is that every patch in there is in
upstream OpenJDK, so, no patch in there should ever be ported to
icedtea7 (because that already has them, or will do very shortly)
and if one fails to apply it's almost certainly because it has
filtered into the HotSpot tarball we're using.
