Bump GNU patch in tools from 2.7.1 to 2.7.5.
Change download URL to use @GNU alias.

Signed-off-by: Hannu Nyman <hannu.nyman@iki.fi>


Changes between 2.7.1 and 2.7.5:

Changes in version 2.7.5:

* There are users which expect patch to follow symbolic links in the working
   directory, so patch now again follows symbolic links as long as they do not
   leave the working directory.

Changes until version 2.7.4:

* When a file isn't being deleted because the file contents don't match the
   patch, the resulting message is now "Not deleting file ... as content
   differs from patch" instead of "File ... is not empty after patch; not
* Function names in hunks (from diff -p) are now preserved in reject files.
* Patch no longer follows symbolic links to input and output files. This
   ensures that symbolic links created by git-style patches cannot cause
   patch to write outside the working directory (CVE-2015-1196).
* Various fixes.
