  diff -urp grub.old

-r for recursive.

-u is needed to prevent everyone's eyes from bleeding (for some odd reason,
everyone prefers this but is still not the default).

-p is often preferred in this list to track which functions you changed.

Please resend your patch with the new params, it'll make it easier to review

Also, remember to include a ChangeLog entry describing it.
