Typically a branch wouldn't have even been made, and you would just
commit to head yourself when you had your patch ready.

As it is, I think the correct thing is to check out head, "cvs up -j
sco_port_update", test build and check that cvs diff shows the code
you're actually trying to merge.  Commit to head, and be done.

After that, either don't use the same branch any more (recommended IMO,
due to cvs's lame branching support) or lay down tags on head as
described in the old DRI CVS policy, so you'll be able to merge to head
again later.
