This doesn't actually answer the question, it just says it will remove the mentions of the patents from the license.  This does not make the library safe to use and redistribute (at most, it means that people who download it after the explicit mention of the patents can't be accused as easily of wilful infringement).  A BSD-licensed project must include an explicit (separate) patent license to be safe to use in any jurisdiction where the patents are valid.  See Google's WebM for an example.
