Generally speaking,
a preferred way is to base patches on the subsystem tree.

Kernel developers are supposed to do their development on linux-next,
but, in reality, many people work on Linus' tree since it is more stable and
git history is fast-forward.

In many cases, patches based on Linus' tree can apply to sub-systems as well.

I am happy to fix-up a conflict locally
as long as it is trivial, and there is no other reason for re-spin.

Unfortunately, Kbuild tree changed the top-level Makefile a lot in
this development cycle.

If your patch does not apply cleanly, I do not know which context you
are moving the code to.
Also, I found suspicious description in the commit log.

That's why.
