I suspect you're a bit confused.  The definition of "uncommitted
patches" is that they aren't *in* the cvs repository.  cvs can try 
to merge changes into your checked-out sources instead of overwriting 
them like cvsup does, but that's the closest I can think of to what
you seem to be saying.

The cvsup-mirror port will take care of it all for you (asking you a
few questions along the way for configuration).
