Do you want the patch on top of 


Or on top of the unpatched


Or on top of the kernel driver file where 110-firmware....patch 
already has been applied?

Or on top of the file


The latter would be the easiest, but it probably breaks the 110 patch.

In upstream kernels the bcm47xx_nvram is not part of the kernel, 
this made me believe that it was generated with a patch file. 
Didn’t realize that the OpenWRT also has a files directory from
which the additional kernel drivers get "injected" in the kernel:


Still this makes me believe they are openwrt specific kernel file,
but I guess, that is just how one wants to read this sentence.

There exists a diff/patch format for a very good reason. Please send
patches, so I can review your changes.

Not really, they are part of the kernel. I was working for last few
months moving them out of MIPS arch code.
