* Add patch header-comment-fix.patch to fix a typo in the

patches alpha-largefile.patch and debian-build-rules.patch
- Drop patches to fix bugs #287422 and #729275, as these problems
are fixed differently upstream.

fixing pixel conversion macros, making sure the default alpha level
is max, not zero.
