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.
