So just to make sure I understand exactly what you need.

1. I should get the gnucash.git repository from 
2. I should git branch -t mingw origin/mingw-rebasing and check out that 
3. I should appy my patches to that branch - ignoring any which are 
already there
4. I should run git diff to get a series of patches against the branch 
in the repository
5. I should split the resulting diff into different files relating to 
the different fixes
6. I should post the result somewhere and tell you where it is
