    I thought the preferred method was:

    --- linux-2.6.2.orig/Documentation/SubmittingPatches
    +++ linux-2.6.2/Documentation/SubmittingPatches

    In other words, I always thought you should have a whole parallel
    original tree. This more nicely captures multi-file changes, IMHO, and
    I've seen this a great deal.
