If you can reconstruct the patched source, then:

- apply the patch series as far as possible
- take a copy of this original source, and on the copy reconstruct the patched
- take a diff of this against its original, and you get a patch
- use dpatch-edit-patch to create a new patch against the original,
apply the difference, and capture it
