I never asked you to do this. I asked you to use git diff command, just to
verify what you have done is right or not? You can't send output of that
as a patch :)

And maybe post that as an part of non-commit log, so that others can
quickly review it. But because your patch is too big, it will make it a huge

It was just an trick i was sharing with everybody else.
