Did a patch get overwritten?

Hello all,

I have a patch that I applied to the FreeBSD source in /usr/src/.  I then executed a make buildworld that succeeded.  I ran make release to generate media.  However, it looks as though the driver I patched was updated by CVS during the make release process as seen in the make release output.  Did it, indeed, overwrite the source I patched with what was available on the CVS server?

If so, at what point do I need to modify the source so that I can build a new release with this driver patch?
