From said document:
15) The canonical patch format

The canonical patch subject line is:

Subject: [PATCH 001/123] subsystem: summary phrase

The canonical patch message body contains the following:

- A "from" line specifying the patch author.

- An empty line.

- The body of the explanation, which will be copied to the
permanent changelog to describe this patch.

- The "Signed-off-by:" lines, described above, which will
also go in the changelog.

- A marker line containing simply "---".

- Any additional comments not suitable for the changelog.

- The actual patch (diff output).

That should do it. We cannot tell what should NOT be done.

If you use git then it is trivial to commit your changes and
generate patches using "git format-patch ..."
