It looks like you have the basics of creating the patch down. 

The steps of sending a patch is this:

- Identify the maintainer of the system you want to change
-- This list should help: https://github.com/qemu/qemu/blob/master/MAINTAINERS

- Add the maintainer's email address to the list of senders

- Create a subject line that identifies the file you are patching. If there is 
only one file that is changed by your patch, you would add that file's name to 
the subject line. 
-- Example: [PATCH] ppc/cpu-models.c: Add PowerPC 7477a v1.5 to cpu model list

- To send the patch, use 'git send-email <patch file>'

- Add a signed off by line. This can be done for you by git by using the -s 
-- Example: git commit -s

- This is a way to make a patch:
git add target/ppc/cpu-models.c
git commit -s
git format-patch -1 -v2
git send-email <The patch file>
