Yeah I use git notes for this.

When I apply a patch I record the patchwork id in a git note, I have a
custom hacked pwclient that does it automatically. I also download the
full mbox from patchwork and stash it in .git/patchwork/<patch id>.

Then I have everything I need to generate a properly threaded reply to
the original mail.

The git notes work well, if you add the following to your .git/config:

[notes]
	rewriteRef = refs/notes/*
	displayRef = refs/notes/*

Then all notes are copied when you rewrite a commit (rebase), and also
displayed by eg. git show.

Every now and then if you do extensive rebasing/splitting you get
commits with the wrong or no patchwork ids. But that's pretty rare and
not that hard to fixup when it happens.

There's a slightly sanitised version of some of my scripts here:
