Your friendly, neighbourhood patchwork administrator should be able to
do this for you. I don't know who this is for that given instance, but
a quick look at the "About" page for one of the projects [1] suggests
firing an email to "ftpadmin at kernel dot org" might get you

Alternatively, I think if you create a patchwork user account and link
it to your email addresses, then the name used for the patchwork user
account will be used in place of the one extracted from a mail address.

Hope this helps,
