Quick summary of the fix: some patches previously contained
extended-diff-style metadata:

> rename from src/share/vm/oops/symbolOop.cpp
> rename to src/share/vm/oops/symbol.cpp

Some versions (at least) of the GNU patch command can not handle this.
This was causing 'make patch' to break on some systems. This changeset
fixes the problem by including a second patch to represent the file
rename (without obscuring the original patch too much).
