That the patched file is a patch itself does not really matter, you
just need to apply the patch and that should do the right thing, as
once inside the extracted source package: «patch -p0 <patch».

Yes as mentioned, the diff you posted is only a part of the needed
changes that Samuel provided to make it build. The part that I don't
understand though is that the current source package in Debian unstable
is 0.1h-11, which contains the 01-conglomeration.patch file Samuel
patched against, you say you are splitting that into smaller chunks
(as the new maintainer perhaps?), so then I pressume you should have
moved the <asm/byteorder.h> chunks to another patch, which should be
modified instead.

If you have taken over as the new maintainer the current Vcs-Git field
is not working, so a new URL would be nice to understand what's your
actual issue. Otherwise applying Samuel's patch first, and then
splitting 01-conglomeration.patch would be the wiser thing to do.
