I'm not sure that I understand you well, but if you would like to just
obtain appropriate changeset, then you can of course do it -- I think
that's the basic functionality provided by all changese/patchset oriented
SCMs, i.e. in arch (tla) it will look like:

tla get gcc--main--3.5--patch-35

Yes, that's also the case with Arch automatically generated changelogs.
(if you need example of such changelog, just ask and I will provide you
some from MICO development source tree)
