Your patch is not allowed to break fate. If the fate results are
correct references, then fate is catching an error in your patch which
you need to correct. If the change in fate is expected (implied by the
patch), then you need to change the fate results or adapt the fate test
within the same patch.

New additional fate tests are welcome (or preferred? not sure) as
separate patches.

How to update fate:
There's a web (or wiki) page about that, and James wrote this excellent
stuff recently (perhaps not related to your quest here):
