Then porter-NMU the package. Done correctly, this forces the maintainer to 

*) override the patch again. -> tech-ctte (which should be trusted or enhanced 
to not be influenced by non-releasable vs releasable, but only by the 
technical merits of the patch)

*) accept the patch -> patched

*) run and hide -> still patched
