Hard. You could do it with a vendor tree in CVS and using cvs rdiff, but in 
the long run this tends to be troublesome (because CVS only supports
a single vendor tree)

I created patches for the SGI kernel against 2.3.99pre2 using a separate
2.3.99pre2 tree: 
-rw-r--r--   1 ak       suse       753985 Mar 30 16:13 sgixfs-000330.bz2
I can make them available if there is interest.
