Yes, all these patches should be in ext4 git tree.

The patch queue series is divided into stable and unstable patches.
The stable patches are the one usually the ones used to push back
upstream, while the unstable section has the patches for development
purposes only and are not ready for pushing upstream (and some may
never make it in).

Same thing bug in git format.  I believe Ted updates his patch queue
from the patches in the git tree repo, so  if you want latest/greatest
the git tree is what you want.
