Patching: Assume?

I tried to apply a kernel patch and found it was already installed. But in this message:

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Assume -R? [n]
... what does "Assume -R" mean? And what would I respond if I wanted the re-apply the patch? Thanks.

If you want it to 'assume -R', it reverses the before and after state of the patch. In other words, if it has been applied, it backs it out.
