    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
