This has changed again in r78141. Patrol tokens no longer depend on
rcid; instead, they are the same throughout the session (like the edit
token is), but NOT equal to the edit token. Also,
api.php?action=patrol now only accepts POST requests.
The changes in r75274 were never part of any release and were never
deployed to Wikimedia wikis.
