Cf. http://bugs.debian.org/541855

Package: patch
Version: 2.5.9-5
Severity: minor

It would be helpful if failure messages were displayed on stderr, not stdout to filter the messages

Hunk #5 FAILED at 220.
1 out of 6 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file arch/sh/kernel/time_32.c.rej

An example:

patch -p2 < *.diff > good.log 2> bad.log
