This is the answer I got from Adam Conrad on the debian-
apache@lists.debian.org list.

"Debian's general take on patching upstream packages is to license it 
under "the same license as upstream, whatever that may be", specifically to 
make it easier to get patches accepted upstream, so we can stop maintaining 
them.

While I'm not sure who was responsible for this specific patch, as a Debian 
Apache maintainer, and I can be fairly sure that no one intended to license it 
incompatibly (as was suggested in the bug, where someone surmised that it was 
probably GPL... Not sure where they'd get that idea from).

All of THAT aside, so little code is changed, and it's mostle just shuffling 
header includes, I'd question if the patch was even copyrightable in the first 
place.

We've submitted many patches upstream in the past, and will continue to do so 
in the future.  If this one slipped through the cracks, it's only because it 
was so small and insignificant, not because of the license.  By all means, 
take it, give it a new home in ASF SVN, let us stop carrying it around in our 
package.

... Adam"

So it shouldn't be any problems.
