diff, patch, and symbolic links

I have a customized kernel tree, and am trying to create the appropriate
patch file.  I use diff -ruN, and then subsequently use patch -p0 to apply
the patch.  When I apply the patch, the files that I have changed in the
include/asm-ppc directory cause conflicts with the include/asm symbolic
links to the same files.  I think that I can resolve this by editing the
patch file to remove any reference to changes in the include/asm tree, but
the exclude file that I created that listed all the include/asm files
should have worked.  At any rate, I am looking for the "right" solution.
