It is supposed to work like this:

$ sudo patch -d /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/ < 10e_modem_fdi_nokia_N95.patch 
patching file 10-modem.fdi
Hunk #1 succeeded at 519 with fuzz 2 (offset 218 lines).

This means that 10-modem.fdi on Sid/Squeeze is different from how it was
when the patch was created, but patch seems to think that it
nevertheless found the right place to insert the modification. The
patched 10-modem.fdi looks reasonable to me, but I do not have a Nokia
N95-3 and therefore I cannot be sure if it works. You can revert the
patch if necessary:

sudo patch -Rd /usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/ < 10e_modem_fdi_nokia_N95.patch
