Given a git patch id, how to find out which kernel release contains it?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Assume I have some issue that was fixed by a recent patch to the official Linux git repository. I have a work around, but I’d like to undo it when a release happens that contains my the fix. I know the exact git commit hash, e.g. f3a1ef9cee4812e2d08c855eb373f0d83433e34c. What is the easiest way to answer the question: What kernel releases so far contain this patch? Bonus points if no local Linux git repository is needed. (LWM discusses some ideas, but these do require a local repository.) (HowTos)
