dgit is capable of tacking a git tree that came from dpkg-source, and
which you have committed to in the normal way (eg as part of an NMU),
and turning it into one that dpkg-source can represent.
The latest version I have (unreleased, sadly, as there are a few more
things that needs finishing off) is capable of converting the git
commits individually into quilt patches, provided the extra history
you have added is `linear enough'.
