This does not in any way address your patch, but you may find it
helpful. My usual next step after "git am" fails is to run "git am -3"
and have it do a 3-way merge. This can sometimes resolve issues
entirely, and when conflicts remain, they are placed in the file with
the usual conflict markers (and the conflicted files are marked in the
index, so you can even use "git mergetool" to help you run an external
tool like xxdiff).
