how to properly submit a patch

I have just made some modifs to prim_file.erl.

In order to rebuild the preloaded modules (for testing my changes), I ran
"./otp_build update_preloaded" which not only rebuilds the preloaded modules
but also commits plenty of things into my git repo.

Now, I want to submit a patch with my modifs, should I send a patch that
includes the changes committed by "./otp_build update_preloaded", or only
the really important diff?
