I believe Git practice is if you can describe your change in 50 characters or less, it’s fine as a single patch. If not, split it up. If you have the former case–patch that makes sense as a single file but still too big for email–then you can (1) file a bug report and attach the patch to that, or (2) have a public Git repo on e.g. GitHub and email the list asking devs to pull your changes.
