All good.  The existing tools are designed to work well in the
following workflow:

    $ git format-patch --mbox master..pu
    $ cat 000[234]-*.txt >to-apply
    $ git checkout master
    $ git applymbox to-apply
    $ mv .git/refs/heads/pu .git/refs/heads/old-pu
    $ git checkout -b pu master
    $ git applymbox 0001-*.txt

to advance "master" with selected commits, possibly reordered,
from the "pu" branch, and rebase the "pu" branch using the
remaining commits.

I would like to know a bit about "git format-patch" adding extra
info that you needed to get rid of.  It shouldn't be necessary.
