You can trick CVS into thinking you've added a file simply by adding a
line like

/foo/0/dummy timestamp//

to CVS/Entries manually.  Here CVS would assume you had added a file
foo and will happily do a cvs diff -u for you.

ISTR there was a suit of scripts that helped to deal with issues like
that (i.e. a cvsadd script that did just what I've described above).
I've lost the link, sorry.

You can always send in a file (or an archive) in addition to your
patch and tell us where to add the file(s).
