Well patches always welcomed. Please post the patches to the list.
Just use diff -uprN a/ b/

where a/ and b/ are two trees of sources. (The diff should be done using
the latest kernel -mm)

Indicate that the mail contains a patch with [PATCH] subject line. You may
include the patch into text attachment. The message body will just contain
a description of the patch and Signed-Off-By line if it is for kernel patch.

You may also read

The SubmittingPatches document is explaining the procedure of submitting patches
to kernel. If you follow the rules and just use the lm-sensors mailing list all
will be fine. (I described the rules briefly above)

I hope it is more clear now. If you have more questions ask please.
