I guess it doesn't crash?  It is possible that some semantic patch just
doesn't support the patch option.  I don't remember if it is possible to
specify several options, and to have them tried in order?  That could be a
nice feature.  If not, I think that there is an option that tries all of
the options in a fixed order.  Nicolas?
