You want to generate a patch from the release to the current tip of the
patch branch:

        cvs patch -rrel-1-1 -rrel-1-1-patches myModule >patch

Ordinarily, you'd want to remember (tag) the current state so that you
can generate a future patch from this patch rather than back at the
original release, so you'd really want to do something like:

        cvs rtag -rrel-1-1-patches rel-1-1-patch1 myModule
        cvs patch -rrel-1-1 -rrel-1-1-patch1 myModule >patch
