No, they don't require any hooks on the master tree. IIRC, most project 
maintainers using patchwork simply run a script on their local checkout 
to update the patchwork states.

In your case, I'd suggest a cron job to do a git fetch from the main 
repo, and run tools/update-patchwork-commits (or a similar script) to 
update the state of patches added since the previous fetch.
