Re: Creating a patch

Most people would copy the old file to fdisk.c.orig, and edit fdisk.c, and
submit patches that way.  Should be trivial for you to do quickly.

You can also just edit the file, and run `cvs diff`, to generate the diffs
against cvs.  That'll make sure you do the right direction, and its guarenteed
to apply against the cvs revision you were using.
