[Quilt-dev] diff output header/format question

Search on lore.kernel.org (at least when searching by patchid, commitid)
looks for a "^diff" line before the ---/+++ lines in a patch.

Can anyone suggest a way to cause or create that line?

So instead of

--- a/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c
+++ b/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c

at the beginning of a file's patch, it would be 3 lines:
(a la git but without the "--git")

diff a/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c b/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c
--- a/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c
+++ b/arch/ia64/mm/numa.c

AFAICT quilt has no problem reading patches like this, since
whenever I get a (git) patch from other people to test, I apply
it with quilt and then rebuild the kernel.
