No, they are not, and here's why:

Applying: dcache: remove trailing whitespace
error: patch failed: fs/dcache.c:254
error: fs/dcache.c: patch does not apply
Patch failed at 0001 dcache: remove trailing whitespace

... which, BTW, happens in *all* branches. If you do that kind
of stuff, at least do it against something in the public trees
and _tell_ _what_ _it_ _is_ _against_.

Or send a sed script for doing that[1] - even Linus takes those
for search-and-replace stuff.

[1] sed -i -e 's/[[:space:]]*$//' fs/dcache.c
or, if you are not sending to Linus,
ed fs/dcache.c <<'EOF'

Not applied. Please, do it sanely. BTW, which editor is _that_
annoying? Anything that shoves trailing whitespace in my face
would've been either configured (with considerable cursing at
the people who'd set such defaults) or, should that prove
impossible, given a boot...
