If you look at
you'll see that patches are organized in a set of sub-directories, and
the patch order is defined in a shell script,
that has to be executed over a Git kernel tree.
To handle such a bizarre stuff, I don't see any other option that
adding a new kconfig option to specify a shell script to be executed at
"patch" time of the kernel, so that one can do whatever funky things
(s)he wants. That's ugly, but I don't see a nice and generic way of
handling such a bizarre distribution of kernel code.
