The standard procedure I do is to revert in the feature branch first
(git checkout linus/master; git commit -sm 'revert' -a), and then revert
this manual revert, split and fix this revert revert until it fits...
This should ideally result in the same code after merging as before.

If everything is still ok, the first revert goes to the work/for-next-letux-base branch.
This is merged every now and then so the revert finally goes to letux-base.
And then a rebase letux-base makes it disappear everywhere else, i.e. also
in the feature branch.

But this means you shouldn't commit to letux-base or work/for-next-letux-base
yourself since it may mix up my activities in unpredictable manner... And
even worse I do a git push -f for those.

So just let me know when you have such a patch branch ready. Then I can
cherry-pick the revert and do the rebase and everything else.
