Is that really the right patch?  It doesn't seem to be in the portable
version, but the portable version is apparently affected as well by the
gratuitous "No such identity" message.
The aforementioned patch breaks the portable version since Options has
no member named identity_file_userprovided.

So, what's the real patch for this problem relative to 6.2p1?
