Please try the following, what you attached cannot be used.
Checkout current FFmpeg:
$ git checkout git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg
Make your change(s) in the created directory ffmpeg.
Commit your change:
$ git commit libavcodec
If you have never committed before with git, you 
first have to set your name and email.
Your commit message should start with "lavc/dvdec; " 
and it should contain "Fixes ticket #5092." (and an 
explanation why the change is useful).
Then produce a patch file:
$ git format-patch -1
Attach the resulting file to an email, it is called 
something like "0001-lavc..."
