By "I do a diff of the relevant files", I meant "bzr diff -rsubmit:
<files>", or rather C-u C-x v = s[TAB] RET RET.
By "pick the relevant parts", I meant:
- go to the *vc-diff* buffer
- M-x cd RET /my/checkout/of/the/trunk RET
- apply C-c C-a to the hunks I want to pick
- edit to clean up, improve, ...
- save the modified files.
- do C-x v = on the modified files, to see the patch I'm about to commit
  to trunk (or to send it via email).

Depends if you edited it well or not.

Again, depends if you edited it correctly or not.  Have you tried it?

Have you tried the patch and confirmed that it works and fixes
your problem?  I see it lacks the removal of change-major-mode-hook.
