I had a quick look at the Debian patches, local-enable-ldconfig.diff
probably fits in that category, as the header mentions: « Upstream
disagrees with this patch, but I'm putting it in so that we have
expected Debian behaviour on the Hurd. » It seems to really be a
Debian-specific patch.

Others patches should be fine and it should be possible to just add them
automatically, the header of the patch (lines before ^---$) being used
as the git comment.

About that git comment, it should probably be preserved, so it can be
included automatically in patches in Debian and for submission. I guess
TopGit supports that?

Else it seems just fine, thanks.
