Personally I make my patches with the old fashioned diff. Seen that  
you're using git you may try to extract a patch with "git diff" (don't  
forget the Changelog), comparing the actual (working) branch against  
the (untouched) master could be a good idea to keep your work easily  

Obviously those two branches should be synced at the same commit,  
otherwise you'll have a spurious patch with some else's code.

git format-patch is mostly used for email submission.

Hope this can help.
