Are you trying to apply a revision that was uploaded to Phabricator from
one of the individual repository (or from SVN)?
The issue if I remember correctly is that a patch uploaded from an SVN
checkout would not start with `llvm/` or `clang/` and wouldn't be able to
be applied in the monorepo. Conversely, a revision created from the
monorepo can't be applied by `arc patch` in a single subproject checkout.
I don't think there is a way around this, maybe `--strip-prefix` and
`--add-prefix` options could be added to `arc patch`, but I'm not sure it
would fit the expectation of `arc` upstream.
