Thanks for the heads up. Notice of a merged patch is always nice, but
otherwise there is no real need to do anything unless upstream's patch
is different or better in some way, is security-related, etc.
When we package a KDE release that has the merged patch, we'll notice
(because the Debian patch won't apply anymore), check why, see that
it's merged, and simply drop it.
