Yeah, maybe it would have been better to send individual patches.

From my point of view it's a series because the patches are related (I
did a git format-patch from my local branch). But for the maintainers
point of view, they are individual patches.

As each patch in this series is standalone, the maintainers can pick
the patches they want and apply them individually. So yeah, maybe I
should have sent individual patches. But I also wanted to tie all
patches together as it's the same change.

Anyway, I can tell to each maintainer that they can apply the patches
they're concerned about and next time I may send individual patches.

Thank you for your answer,
