Use either "diff -u" (unified) or "diff -c" (context).

Those formats include some context (lines before and after those being
added/removed/modified), which makes them more robust. They are also
easier to read.

Patches which use the default format are only safe to apply to the
exact code which was used for creating them. Applying them to code
which has changed in any way is unreliable (patching may fail
unnecessarily) and risky (patching may appear to succeed but produce
the wrong result).
