Because you didn't do a git commit.

Also, your file is a full .config file, while defconfig have to be
minimal configuration files.

So basically, you have do:

  1/ make savedefconfig
  2/ mv defconfig configs/sama5d4ek_defconfig
  3/ git add configs/sama5d4ek_defconfig
  4/ git commit -s
  5/ git format-patch ...

Note that my colleague Alexandre Belloni has anyway planned to do a
refresh of all the Atmel defconfig in Buildroot.
