Not sure what is best to do. If the cover letter goes to everyone, it
could be rejected for too many recipients. Currently it goes to all the
mailing lists. If the patches are sent separately, then could there be a
cover letter for each one? If the semantic patch is complicated, then I
typically put the whole thing there, and an abbreviated one in the actual
patch. That is not relevant here, because the semantic patch is small.
Part of the purpose of the cover letter was to allow people who were not
interested to skip over the whole thing at once.
