You don't want to use -p0 otherwise you'll get bugs from buxy about
not supporting dpkg source package v3. I'm using this to generate my

$ grep REFRESH ~/.quiltrc
QUILT_REFRESH_ARGS="-pab --no-timestamps --no-index"

If you actually want -p0 for some weird reason, make sure the series
file has that option in it:

$ locate debian/patches/series | xargs grep -- -p0
/home/pabs/devel/debian/games/passage/debian/patches/series:abs_path.patch -p0
/home/pabs/devel/debian/games/passage/debian/patches/series:amd64_fix.patch -p0
