Hi Linus,

In that case, a nice refinement is to put the sequence number at the end of
the subject line so patch sequences don't interleave:

Subject: [PATCH] Unbork OOM Killer (1 of 3)
Subject: [PATCH] Unbork OOM Killer (2 of 3)
Subject: [PATCH] Unbork OOM Killer (3 of 3)
Subject: [PATCH] Unbork OOM Killer (v2, 1 of 3)
Subject: [PATCH] Unbork OOM Killer (v2, 2 of 3)
...

Regards,

Daniel
