The diff you attached is not immediately usable and readable, you should
leave the header and some line context. And most (all) developers prefer
the unified format. To produce a correct patch, just run a command like:

  diff -u Linux-orig.pm Linux.pm >Linux.pm.patch

(The developer may then apply Linux.pm.patch using "patch" command.)


perl -e 'print+chr(64+hex)for+split//,d9b815c07f9b8d1e'
