This is still not a git formatted patch, it is a git-formatted patch

Look at the raw patch: https://paste.xinu.at/Qx2ys2gs/

Note the junk at the bottom where it includes the html version of the
patch. Note the plaintext copy of the email which 1) translated all tab
characters into spaces, and 2) occasionally adds extra linebreaks when
it decides the line is too long.

It is "possible" to convince some email clients to not completely mangle
patches. (Gmail' web interface is not one of these.) But if you've never
done it before... don't try. Just use git-send-email(1) which will ask
for the email to/from addresses and can be given the in-reply-to message
id, and will *guarantee* that the patch is not corrupted.
