Yes the release 2.1 section is the right place for it. In terms of creating patches

cvs diff -u > patch_file

will produce a usable patch, although be aware of any new files that have been added as these will not be seen by cvs until they are explicitly added.

If you upload a patch to the patches page on sourceforge then one of the
developers will be able to apply it. If you can make sure you have a
documentation block that describes the driver interface, author and any
important notes that will be good.

Also if you add a note on the player wiki on the player 2.1 roadmap then
we can make sure the driver makes it into the 2.1 release
