That's correct - patchwork uses the content of the mail to determine if 
it contains a patch, not the subject.

Patchwork does make a few modifications to the subject though - mostly 
treatment of []-enclosed prefixes. For example, it removes [PATCH] from 
the subject line - if it's in patchwork, it's a patch :).

So, in this case, the following subjects:

 [RFC] fix breakage
 [PATCH,RFC] fix breakage
 [RFC,PATCH] fix breakage
 [PATCH/RFC] fix breakage

will all be normalised to:

 [RFC] fix breakage
