Thanks. It's simple enough.

There are classes of patches generated by scripts that have
no real mechanism to be applied today.

For instance: global coccinelle scripted changes to use stracpy
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/alpine.DEB.2.21.1907251747560.2494@hadrien/

and trivial scripted changes to MAINTAINERS
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/6482e6546dc328ec47b07dba9a78a9573ebb3e56.camel@perches.com/

that are basically impossible to be applied by anyone but you.

Otherwise there are hundreds of little micro patches most of
which would not otherwise be applied.

There should be some process available to get these treewide
or difficult to keep up-to-date and apply patches handled.

I believe these sorts of scripted patches should ideally
be handled immediately before an RC1 so other trees can be
synchronized in the simplest way possible.
