I disagree: people should never attach patches to bug reports (even
if they can). Instead, they should create an item in the patches
tracker and indicate that this patches fixes a bug in the subject
(which is what many people have been doing all the time). They should
leave a comment in the bug report indicating that there is a patch
for it.

That way, it is much easier to see what the bugs with patches are.
