If you actually understand sed syntax, you probably don't need this guide in the first place.
For everyone else, patch --binary is much, much easier
ETA: Also, there have been issues reported in the past where mass conversions like that hit some binary files in the source tree and caused the compile to fail and/or the resulting binary to not work properly. Restrict to *.c, *.h, and *.mak for safety.
