This works fine, but the first two lines looks like this

It looks like to me that fdisk.c should be replaced with fdisk.c.local.

well, not really. this should work well

The patches posted in the submit list don't have the .local extension.

yes, they are cvs diffs.

Should I have diffed the checked out source with my changes
against the repository?

yes, that's the easiest way:

cvs diff -u

If this is the case, how do I make a reference to the repository
that diff understands?
The manpage don't even mention this case.

I'm not sure what you want to ask. cvs knows about the repository etc, because of its CVS/* maintainance files

I used diff. Missed the cvs part. I should be fine now. Thanks.
