you can't ignore the error as the patch was not completely installed. 
The only reason why it worked is simply luck and it might not work with 
future patches. This issue must be manually resolved, you should read 
the manual page of patch for more details how it works.

As the patching system should have told you, it can be normal that when 
you install more than 1 patch that you will hit this kind of problem. 
This usually occurs because 2 or more patches attempt to modify the same 
lines in the same files, which is the case for the 2 patches you have 

The HSF driver version was released and the issues fixed by 
the patches have been corrected in this new version. The latest version 
of the HSF driver can be downloaded at:
