           Summary: Displayed exit status of tool specified in 'ui.patch'
                    is incorrect
          Severity: bug

'hg import' can be configured to use a custom patch tool via the 'ui.patch'
option. However, it sometimes claims that the exit status of the tool is
different from what it really is.

For example, if the patch tool is 'patch --merge', and you import a patch that
doesn't merge cleanly, 'patch --merge' returns with exit status 1, but 'hg
import' displays:

  abort: patch command failed: exited with status 256

Jordi GutiƩrrez Hermoso said in bug 4697 comment 27 that this is likely a bug
caused by "how low bits and high bits of error codes are getting translated".
