If a patch is malformatted to begin with, I can't help it. But, if
your email client happens to support running external commands on mail
files, I have a script that applies them to a given local git repo,
launching a terminal window for it and optionally running it though the
kernel checkpatch.pl. On any errors, it drops you to a shell.

Personally I use claws-mail, and could share my setup, if
anyone is interested in homebrewn solution for the save & apply part.
