    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 ..."
