What I usually do (forgot that in my list) is dch -i and change the
generated version number from say '2.4.5-3ubuntu6' to
'2.4.5-3ubuntu5seveas1'. That way my version number is higher than the
latest official one, and i'd like it to be overwritten by upgrades. I
keep my patches in an archive and apply them to new version (if
applicable).
