Creating patch files


git format-patch FORKED_COMMIT is used for creating patch files.
The difference from git diff is that commit history is preserved, so
commit messages, authors and signoffs are included and can applied
by just running git am PATCH_FILE. Additionally, git format-patch
create a patch file rather than printing to stdout.
