Sometimes (admittedly not very often) we get clashes. For example, the usermode-sources upstream patch sometimes includes UML fixes which are also present in -stable. This allows us to work around that with minimal hassle in the ebuild, by setting UNIPATCH_EXCLUDE=1234 where 1234 is the genpatches ID of the duplicated patch.
