Patches are a higher work overhead than we suspect. If you are not in a
hurry, I would recommend to ask Upstream he can change the path to the
docs. That would make him do the work for you ;)

Other alternatives to patching are to delete
$(CURDIR)/debian/yourpackage/usr/doc, or to try to override the path at
build time.

If you chose to patch, I suggest that you forward it upstream and
indicate this in the patch header.
