They're on hold awaiting further development and awaiting a merge/no-merge
decision.

They're not causing me any trouble.

If/when the developers start doing more work, we can then decide whether
to use incremental patches or to take a drop-them-and-start-again approach.

(If a whole new patch series comes out, I have tricks which allow me to
check that none of the above fixup patches got lost. Those tricks don't
work if I drop all the patches first)

But yes, it has been pretty quiet. If there's no intention to proceed with
these patches, someone please tell me.
