SharePoint 2013 Workflow Fails after applying post SP1 & CU's

Like many have found, there is a bug in the patches applied in SP1 and I believe one of the subsequent Cumulative Updates - the issue appears when a Workflow tries to start. Right out of the gate you get the nasty error message:

For search purposes:

Method 'StartWorkflowOnListItem' in type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowServices.FabricWorkflowInstanceProvider' from assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowServices, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublickeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' does not have an implementation.

You will also see Event ID 1000/1025 errors complaining about the Service Bus in the Event Application Log.

Fortuately the fix is KB2880963 - you can download this from here:

You can apply this patch and will not require a reboot or run of the Configuration (i.e. PSConfig).
