As these patches were fairly simple and confined to separate areas i just saved off the diffs from the changesets, then applied and tested them individually.
I have a few more complicated patches left to submit but wasn't completely happy with them so held them back. I will use format patch for them.

How are you generating the .patch attachments? Git am does not parse them properly; however git apply works. Git am is a lot less work because it extracts the commit comment, etc. from the patch file.
Git format-patch generates a file that works with git am.
