btw: it seems to me the thing you're looking for is the tree
to which any particular patch could or would be applied.

That can be got by using the --scm option:

./scripts/ --scm <patch>

Only ~400 of ~1445 subsystem sections have a "T:" tree entry
so pairing the maintainer and the tree generally tells you
who is responsible for upstreaming any patch.
