Hmmm, but the patch doesn't have two consecutive lines with ".orig" as
you describe above.  From observation, the first three lines for each
modified file are similar to

diff -u openssh-5.8p1/kex.c.orig openssh-5.8p1/kex.c
--- openssh-5.8p1/kex.c.orig    2010-09-24 08:11:14.000000000 -0400
+++ openssh-5.8p1/kex.c    2011-02-11 18:14:03.396688000 -0500

Are you using the GNU patch?  The attached patch text works for me with
no changes whatsoever.  Or to ask it somewhat differently, does your
`patch' process WRONG even though the text is actually CORRECT?  Is it
possible that your`patch' is not ignoring the "diff" line?

Actually, after I had sent the previous, I thought I should have added
that the described approach is a cop out on my part (;-}).

I submit hosts, one per line, as the data to ssh-keyscan and am not
familiar with the "alias" format.  In fact, your comments clarified it
somewhat for me.  If you meant that "" was seen in stderr and
the others weren't, I believe that this is the "correct" behavior if
ssh-keyscan had success with "".  I think the code tells me
that it stops looking after the first IP/host with which it has
