The other day I did something similar and ended up with

	git format-patch --range-diff=v1 v1..v2

Would it help not to use the three-dot form?  From my reading of
"git format-patch --range-diff=<previous>" description, it only
needs to give a single range (i.e. previous side of series of
commits) as the other range to be compared are by definition the
patches you are producing, while v1...v2 syntax is to give two
ranges with one option.  So...
