The gnome team (who uses those patch tags a lot) uses PATCH-FIX-UPSTREAM

introduce a new tag.

The for mentioned page defines it as "Fixes for the upstream sources
that should be upstreamed" which by definition does not fit the backport.

You can just pretend that the patch had been added before upstream included it
(since such patches are not removed after they have been applied upstream
until they cease to be valid).
