Upgrading the patches after upgrading the base

Every once in a while I see commits like this:

Where one dependency is updated. The line numbers on the patches are also updated.
Is there a tool to do that automatically or you need to apply the patches and do the diff again?

Some developers manage their patches with the quilt tool.

If the patches still apply, but with fuzz, a "make target/linux/refresh" run is enough to rebase the patches against the updated sources.
