Speaking in my capacity as the OpenBSD packager for bash, either
way is fine. We use the upstream patches as provided ("distribution
patches"). These are applied with -p0 by default, but it's utterly
trivial to specify -p1 if necessary. The choice of context vs.
unified diffs is immaterial; patch(1) handles both formats.
