git applymbox is too anal

Ick.  I'm trying to apply a bunch of patches to a git repo (the kernel
tree), using 'git applymbox' and it's just dieing on simple patches that
apply with fuzz.

for example:

$ git applymbox ~/linux/patches/u07

Applying 'USB: fix up URB_ASYNC_UNLINK usages from the usb-serial drivers'

error: patch failed: drivers/usb/serial/option.c:513
error: drivers/usb/serial/option.c: patch does not apply

$ patch -p1 --dry-run < ~/linux/patches/u07
patching file drivers/usb/serial/keyspan.c
patching file drivers/usb/serial/option.c
Hunk #3 succeeded at 509 with fuzz 1.

So, I have to then do a 'patch, git diff, git checkout-cache -f -u -a,
git applymbox' type dance to get this patch to apply.

Or am I missing some option to 'git applymbox' that I can't seem to
