Nobody's going to remember all that stuff except yourself, and the info
might be out of date. So please update and maintain that information
and retain it with the patchset.

eg: "<NEED SOME BACKING NUMBERS>". And "Please read the patch
description of the last patch for more details" is out of date.

Because right now I have a bunch of code in my inbox and little
(actually "no") idea why anyone might want to merge it into anything.

Trying to review a large patchset when you don't have an overall
picture of what it's trying to do and how it's trying to do it is
rather painful - you have to work all that stuff out from the
implementation. It's also error-prone if the implementation doesn't
implement that which the author thinks it implements (ie: if it has
design bugs).
