Your patch tells you the revision for which the patch is created:

(revision 1580)
You can see it's revision 1580 and not 1773.

If you are lucky you don't have to change very much. If you use eclipse 
or a similar development tool you can manually apply the patch to the 
latest release. You will get some conflicts where the patch tool cannot 
automatically patch and you have to resolve these conflicts.
