Information on patch.xml workflow

I'm currently using SPC5Studio 4.2.1 ( and use it to develop on an SPC560B-DIS evaluation board. I noticed that edits I make to component files in the lib sub-directory are handily stored in regular diff format in patch.xml.

However, I would also like to edit files in e.g. the cfg sub-directory, so I manually created the following entry inside the patch.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SPC5-Patch version="1.0.0">
  <!--It is your patch repository, do not break your XML File.-->
    <file componentId="org.chibios.spc5.components.spc5hal" version="" path="component/cfg/halconf.h" user="false">
      <diff><![CDATA[--- components/portable_spc5_hal_component/cfg/halconf.h
+++ components/portable_spc5_hal_component/cfg/halconf.h

+#define HAL_USE_I2C                 TRUE

However, these manually introduced patches aren't being applied once I recreate the component tree. Is there some setting/trick/... to enable this? Is my syntax wrong? Or is it plain not possible to patch files outside of the lib sub-directories at the moment?
