thanks for your note.

If dh-kpatches wouldn't be available anymore, I would need to replace it by another tool (doing the same thing) for xenomai and rtai which would need some work.

In #465900 I can see that the idea of removing dh-kpatches comes from the urge of removing alcovebook-sgml (with dh-kpatches build-depending on it). Maybe we can make dh-kpatches build without alcovebook-sgml?

I find dh-kpatches helpful for building easily applicable patches from a bunch of diffs, even if make-kpkg doesn't support appying kernel patches directly anymore.
