Why a software patch is called a patch

Link –

Bram Van Damme explains the origin of the word "patch" in context of software.

A common misconception is that a software bug is called a bug because of an actual bug – a moth – that got stuck in Harvard University’s Mark II calculator in 1947, and Grace Hopper finding it + taping it inside a logbook. ... What seems to be legit however is the history of the term software patch.
