Yocto doesn't support git binary diff - workaround?

I'm making minor modifications to my Yocto project using a layer that includes git patch files called up by bbappend files.


This was working fine until I tried to add a new logo BMP file which causes git to produce a binary diff.

This cause bitbake to fail with:

File tools/logos/mx6ullevk.bmp: git binary diffs are not supported.
Patch 0002-First-steps-at-a-useable-python-file-to-create-bitma.patch does not apply (enforce with -f)


That's a pain. Can someone suggest a simple work around?
