Not at all. Whether it is a single or broken, the patch is fed to
underlying "apply" from an unadvertised place.

This is OK, but you may want to give a way to squelch it once the
user learns where it is by following the usual "advice.*" thing.

This is _NOT_ fine, especially if you suggest "patch" the user may
not have, and more importantly does not have a clue why "git apply"
rejected it ("am" does _not_ use "patch" at all).
