I think you're still on master when you make your changes.
git maintains your *local copy* of master as 'master', whereas the 
original, unchanged upstream branch master is still available as 
'origin/master'. You create a patch against a different branch, and 
since you are on 'master' which differs from 'origin/master', it works 
like you described.
If you first create a branch on your side and switch to it before making 
changes, you can run format-patch against your local copy of master as 
That is,

#+begin_src sh
  git branch local
  git checkout local
  # make your changes
  git commit -m "Your message"
  git format-patch master
#+end_src          ^^^^^^

This is also the procedure described in 
under *Sending commits, and it should work fine this way.
