Never mind, I have realised that efipart.c was moved from boot/efi/libefi/
to boot/efi/drivers/ in your git patch, but subversion did not interpret
this change and simply patched the file in place.
I have fixed this with:
$ svn mv boot/efi/libefi/efipart.c boot/efi/drivers/efipart.c

Sorry for the noise (and the previous top post).
