I am really confused,
I read this web:
it said use diff -urN to generate patch like this:

diff -Nru linux.orig/lib/string.c linux/lib/string.c

but I see other developers use git format-patch to generate patch and
submit to the patch system.
Git format-patch format can also be accepted by the patch system correctly ?
If yes, I think this web should update,
Use git format-patch to generate patch is more convenient than use diff -urN
