You can do a git log on the kernel's repo and see when it was applied.
Or do a git blame if you need a particular line of a file.
If you want to match it to a release, track the tags in the repo.
You can use the webinterface:
Just remember that because of the distributed nature of git and the
kernel's development model, a particular patch is merged in many trees
before reaching the de facto main linux repo (Linus' repo).
